Keyboard Shortcut to copy a Series of Files

Tutorial by Stefan Trost | 2018-05-11 at 23:14

I have to copy the same list of files to a folder again and again. This is quite tedious, mainly because the files are in different places on my computer. Ideally, I would have a key combination or some kind of a hotkey, which I define once and then again and again the same action is carried out. For example, CTRL + ALT + 1 to copy one of X predefined files to the currently open folder, or SRTG + ALT + 2 to copy another file list.

Answer: This is possible with the program FasterFiles . With FasterFiles, you can define arbitrary HotKeys and then assign any actions to them, including copying of multiple files.

  1. After starting FasterFiles, you can simply click on the button "New HotKey", enter your desired key combination and activate the option "The HotKey only has one Action List which will be executed immediately".
  2. You can then click on "Add Action" and select the action "Copy File or Folder" from above.
  3. Now you can define in the settings a list of files and/or folders to be copied. You can simply drag the files onto the program for adding them. If you always want to copy to the current Explorer window, you can keep the settings where the files should be copied to like they are. Otherwise, other destinations can be defined here as well.
  4. Once all settings are set as you want, you can simply click on "Save", with which your defined key combination is active.

In addition to copying files, FasterFiles also offers many other actions that can be controlled the same way. You can also add several actions to one key combination.
