Copywhiz 6 is here!

Hi everybody! 

Happy to announce that we have launched a new version of Copywhiz-Version 6.0! 

Let’s take a look at What’s New in Copywhiz 6.

Features Added

The new Copywhiz has made organization of your files simpler and easier than ever before! How?

  1. Organize files based on their attributes:

The biggest addition to Copywhiz is the file Organizer. You can organize files in the destination folder, based on attributes such as name, type, date, size, etc.

You can also easily reorder or delete the order of criteria. There is also a preview option to display the structure before pasting.

The option is available in the ‘Destination’ Tab of the Copywhiz Advanced Settings Window.

2. Organize audio/media files based on their metadata

Another useful feature is for those of you who use .mp3 files on a daily basis. Generally, we keep a lot of mp3 files on our system if we’re fond of music or if our job demands it. But organizing these files is a time-consuming task, particularly if the count is hundreds. 

You can use Copywhiz to organize these mp3 files based on their metadata like song, artist, album, track, etc.

This option is an extension of the Organizer.

3. Sync your source and destination folders

Sync, here means to keep the same set of files in the source and destination folder. Automatically remove a file from the destination folder when it is removed from the source folder.

This feature is used along with the ‘Automatically identify and paste only new and modified files’ feature. The option is available in the ‘General’ Tab of the Advanced Settings Window.

4. Verify data integrity of copied files

To check if all files have been copied successfully without any corruption, we have introduced the option to verify files after they have been copied or transferred from one location to another.

The verification will be visible in the file copy progress box.

5. Copy files to every sub-folder inside the destination folder

We have also added an option to paste a copy of your files to each sub-folder in the destination folder. You may choose to paste them under all sub-folders or all first level sub-folders or all folders having a particular name.


6. Copy files to specific sub-folders in the destination folder

If you don’t want to create a copy of the files in all folders or sub-folders, then you can choose to create a copy in only specific sub-folders.

7. Copy only files created/modified/accessed in the last ‘X’ days

This feature is a step forward in selective file copy. Now you can choose to paste only those files that have been created, modified or accessed in the last ‘X’ days. You can specify any number of days.

8. Paste files to up to 10 destinations at once

Lot of our users had asked for this feature and we have answered the request. You can now paste files simultaneously to up to 5-10 destinations at a time.

This will make copying files to multiple destinations much faster.

9. Disable the Copywhiz menu in the Windows File Explorer menu

Many users did not want Copywhiz menu to appear in the Windows File Explorer menu. They prefer to use keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste files using Copywhiz.

So we have offered the option to disable the Copywhiz menu in the Windows File Explorer menu. You can enable it again anytime later from the General Tab of Preferences menu.

10. Better organization of Copywhiz features

We have changed the view of the Advanced Settings Tab and the various features are split into three different tabs based on their functionality.

This will make it easier to find a particular option instead of searching for it.

Hope this new Copywhiz proves useful and help you work conveniently.

Do let us know what you feel about these new features. We are constantly listening and improving.

Download Copywhiz from here, if you still haven’t. We have 7 day fully functional free trial. Upgrade to Copywhiz 6 if you already have Copywhiz. Contact us for more details.

Do follow our YouTube Channel where we upload interesting videos of Copywhiz.

Have a good day!

Thank you.

Automatically organize files in separate folders based on file attributes

Here is an exciting feature of Copywhiz. It can now automatically copy files in a folder structure based on file properties such as file name, file extension, file type, file size, date modified/created/access and also mp3 metadata like artist, album, genre, title etc.

If you have your project documents, pictures, music files, video files scattered all over your hard drive, this tool will set it all right in few minutes.

Manually copying these files and then pasting them to folders is very time consuming, especially if they are large in number.  For this reason, we just dump these files in a few limited folders and end up in a clutter. This reduces our productivity.

Tag files and folders directly from Windows File Explorer using RecentX

Tagging items is a great option to organize your content. The same goes for the files and folders in your system as well.

We have another good news for you. RecentX now supports tagging of files and folders directly from Windows File Explorer.

Most of us don’t tag our files and folders in Windows since either we don’t know how to or it is a complicated procedure for us.

This is not the case with RecentX. Tagging anything, be it files, folders, programs, website history, or clipboard history, is smooth.

Read this blog post for more clarity:

This post will provide you more details into this.

What is RecentX?

RecentX is a smart launcher for Windows designed to make your computing life joyful. Here are some of the many cool things you can do with RecentX:

  1. Effortlessly access any file, folder or program on Windows in less than 5 seconds!
  2. Assign tags to frequently used files/folders. Makes things even faster.
  3. Integrates with Windows File open/save window so that you don’t have to navigate any folder when opening or saving a document.
  4. It has a clipboard manager too that remembers all the text & pictures copied to a clipboard so that you can quickly pick & paste them again.
Tags

Tagging Files & Folders

Tags or labels are one of the most used features of RecentX because you can easily group items based on projects, topics, etc.

Here’s a short video depicting this feature:

These are the steps to tag files and folders directly from Windows file explorer, using RecentX:

  1. Go to Windows File Explorer.
  2. Right-click on the file(s) you wish to tag and choose the ‘Tag files/folders’ option.

3. The RecentX Tags window will open where you can assign tags.

4. Click on ‘OK’ and the tag will be assigned immediately.

5. You can go to RecentX and click on the tags to find your files there.

Tagging folders is also done in the same way as files.

An easier way to tag files and folders is to drag and drop it from within RecentX over the tag button to assign that tag. You can also drag and drop from Windows File Explorer over the tag button to assign that tag.

Why RecentX?

You now have seen how easy it is to assign tags using RecentX. Unlike Windows, the procedure is much simpler.

Another limitation that Windows has is that it only permits tagging of images, videos, and documents. You might not see the tagging option even on supported file types on rare occasions, depending on the file format.

Also, if you use a different file system, or transfer or shift your files to other computers or external hard drives and thumb drives, then the tags do not stay. Tagging of folders is also not supported in Windows.

All these factors make RecentX a good alternative to Windows File Explorer when you want to tag files and folders.

Another cool thing about RecentX is that it allows searching by multiple tags also. Hold the Ctrl key and select the second tag button from the toolbar in RecentX. You will see the second tag being added automatically.

Download RecentX for free, from here.

RecentX update: Dark mode introduced!

We love using apps in dark mode. Apps like Twitter, Instagram and even YouTube have rolled out dark modes.

I think we all can agree that there is something really soothing and visually appealing about the dark mode. It also gives relief to our eyes that might get strained looking at the bright light of our PC and mobile screens. Another good thing is that dark mode reduces battery usage of devices and therefore ensures longer battery life.

Joining this trend is RecentX. After requests from users, we have finally introduced a dark mode option in RecentX.

What is RecentX?

RecentX is a smart launcher for Windows designed to make your computing life joyful. Here are some of the many cool things you can do with RecentX:

  1. Effortlessly access any file, folder or program on Windows in less than 5 seconds!
  2. Assign tags to frequently used files/folders. Makes things even faster.
  3. Integrates with Windows File open/save window so that you don’t have to navigate any folder when opening or saving a document.
  4. It has a clipboard manager too that remembers all the text & pictures copied to a clipboard so that you can quickly pick & paste them again.
This is how it will look

How to activate dark mode?

Open the RecentX Window and go to the ‘Advanced’ tab on the top.

Select the ‘Preferences’ option and you will find the setting there.

You can switch back to the normal light mode anytime.

Hope you enjoy using RecentX even more after this update.

Tag/label files in Windows using a Windows File Explorer alternative

Tags or labels are very important when working with files. They help you stay organized and increase productivity by saving your time and effort on looking for things.

We know that Windows offers the ability to tag files. But it only permits tagging of images, videos, and documents. You cannot tag any file in Windows. Plus Windows doesn’t let you tag a folder.

This post will show you how you can tag files in Windows using the Windows File Explorer and an alternative software, RecentX. RecentX lets you tag any file or folder. This is the most important difference.

Tagging files using Windows File Explorer

Windows has two methods to tag files. One is from the Properties Windows and the other from the Details Pane.

Since tagging from the Details Pane is a bit easier than the former, we will see the steps for this.

  1. Open the File Explorer using the keyboard shortcut ‘Windows+E’.
  2. In the File Explorer click on the “View” tab and select the “Details Pane” option from the navigation pane. The Details pane will appear on the right side of the File Explorer.

3. To tag a file, select the file from the main window and then add tags in the Tags field appearing in the Details panel. Click on Save.

That’s it.

Tagging files from Windows File Explorer using RecentX

Before we look at the steps, here’s a short video depicting the steps:

Let us look at the steps to do this using RecentX:

  1. Go to Windows File Explorer.
  2. Right-click on the file(s) you wish to tag and choose the ‘Tag files/folders’ option.

3. The RecentX Tags window will open where you can assign tags.

4. Click on ‘OK’ and the tag will be assigned immediately.

5. You can go to RecentX and click on the tags to find your files there.

We also have an easier way to tag whereby you can drag and drop the files from within RecentX over the tag button or drag and drop from Windows File Explorer over the tag button to assign that tag.

Our Verdict

Both Windows and RecentX have minimal steps to tag files.

However, there’s a twist here. Windows has a limitation so it only permits tagging of images, videos, and documents. You might not see the tagging option even on supported file types on rare occasions, depending on the file format.

Also, if you use a different file system, or transfer or shift your files to other computers or external hard drives and thumb drives, then the tags are removed.

Thereby, we would definitely go with something reliable like RecentX.

Another cool thing about RecentX is that it allows searching by multiple tags also. Hold the Ctrl key and select the second tag button from the toolbar in RecentX. You will see the second tag being added automatically.
