Save time looking up admin files

If you're a busy administrator, this tip can save you time looking for those commonly used admin-related files. What to do is set up a folder in your Startup menu, specifically for these files. Here's what to do:

  • To create the folder, go to your Taskbar ---> Start menu. In the Settings, go to Advanced. Then right click on an empty space and create a folder and the close out. (Make sure to note the location and name of the file you just created.)

  • Now, do a search for that file you just created.

  • When you find it, right click on it and select Create Shortcut. This will place it on your desktop.

  • Now you can access anything you drag, paste or create in that folder from your Start menu.

Save your most commonly used admin files here, so you have them all in one place. This will save you time.
