Microsoft has expanded on improvements it's making to the process of copying, moving, renaming and deleting files (collectively referred to as copy jobs) in Windows 8.
The company is working on four major improvements to deliver a clearer - more intuitive - process for such tasks, that are said to represent over 50 per cent of Windows Explorer total command usage (based upon Windows 7 telemetry data).
From a clarity perspective, all copy jobs will be reviewable and controllable from a combined UI. Tackling the usability angle, users will have the ability to pause, resume and stop any copy job - thereby giving greater control over tasks in progress.
The above image gives an idea of further enhancements relating to copy jobs - for example, the presentation of data transfer rates and trends, in what is hoped to be, a more intuitive manner.
