Trick/Hint to Select No to All when Overwriting Files

The following Tech-Recipes tutorial contains a trick for selecting “no to all” in Explorer.


When copying files in Explorer, you are often asked if you would like to overwrite files. Your options are yes, yes to all, no, and cancel.

Here is the trick to avoid this:
Hold down SHIFT when you click no and Explorer will act as if you just pressed a magic no to all button.
