When you copy files from one folder to another and the destination contains a file with the same name, you are prompted to over ride it or override all.  What if you do not want to over ride any.  There is no global response for this.  You must answer no for each one.  Is there a better way ?

I'd right-click the file prior to moving and rename it.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

OR, if you prefer and are dealing with groups of files which you want to copy or move, and want to maintain the same names and extensions, you can create a new folder and move/copy them there instead. The design as it is, intends to protect your files from erroneously being overwritten, thus the cautions and prompts.
