It’s midnight in office and some-one is playing the title track of ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’.
I am sitting with a graphic artist overseeing the design of a page we had to design a week back but had completely forgotten about it.
He goes to Windows Explorer and does something so nifty that I immediately decide to share this with the world.
He needs to copy all the files in a folder except for two. These two files are not arranged in a sequential order. So, ordinarily, I would press the Ctrl key and select the files I wanted or copy all the files and then delete the unwanted files. But this is what my colleague does: he selects the two files that he doesn’t want to copy, goes to the Edit menu, and selects the ‘Invert Selection’ function. Now, all the files except for the ones that don’t have to be copied are selected.
So, first we select and then we ‘invert’ the selection.
Sorry if I sound plebian but man, that is clever!
