Copy Existing Filename to 'Save As' Field

While many utilities provide file naming automation, they're mostly overkill for those cases when you need to make small variations in file content while ensuring the documents group together in a "by name" list.

In the Save As dialog, the default name is the current document name. You can quickly change this to match any existing file.

1. Make the list of files the active element.

2. Click on a grayed-out filename, which momentarily turns black.

3. The Save As field now contains the filename you just clicked.

You can modify the name (adding, say, "version 3") or overwrite that existing file you clicked.

Internet Explorer 4.01: Faster, More Stable

Internet Explorer 4.01: Faster, More Stable -- Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 4.01, a must-have upgrade for Internet Explorer users. Although there's only a single new feature - support for Apple's ColorSync technology so specially created JPEG images are displayed exactly as their creators intended - Internet Explorer 4.01 incorporates numerous bug fixes and speed improvements. Program startup and overall page display performance has improved noticeably, and Microsoft claims enhanced Java performance as well. Stability is always hard to evaluate objectively, but in our testing, 4.01 crashes less often than 4.0 did.

Included in the Internet Explorer 4.01 package is Outlook Express 4.01, which also sports performance improvements, bug fixes, plus a few new features. Outlook Express now provides support for outgoing rules, support for the StuffIt Engine, additional importing capabilities, and improved nickname support. The full combined download ranges from 12.6 MB to a whopping 29.2 MB, although if you download the Active Setup Installer (327K), you can choose which components you want to download and install.
