I have been trying to cleanout my files and write some to a CD. A problem occurred while deleting multible pictures using the control key. If I tried to delete more than 3 pictures at a time the delete process would simply make more copies of what I was trying to delete. I am doing something wrong? Computer not setup right? Anyone experience a simliar problem?
Thanks

I have found that by using the ctrl key to delete specific pictures out of a folder you need to do a firm single click on each photo. Even the slightest hesitation will cause windows to think you have double clicked and want copys of all the photos you have clicked on so far. If i have quite a lot of photos to delete i will choose to rename with a zero in front of the name so they are bunched together( 3 single clicks on a photo). I will then move the ones i want to keep to another folder and just delete the whole folder of unwanted pictures. I find that it is easier when you have taken 100's of digital camera photos. It also gives you a chance to review the pic's before deleting.
