In some cases, when performing an operation to copy or move files, it is necessary to undo the actions, i.e. stop receiving data. This action can be performed regardless of the file manager used.
Among the file managers provided, the operating system uses Windows Explorer by default. With its help, you can carry out not only standard operations (copying and moving to the clipboard), but also advanced ones, for example, canceling operations already running.
Copying is carried out by pressing the shortcut keys Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert. Paste an object from the clipboard - Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert. After pressing one of these combinations, an additional window appears on the screen in which you can follow the course of the current operation.
To cancel the current action, you must click the "Cancel" button in the open dialog box or press the Escape key. If nothing happened after pressing this key, then the focus was not on this window. Move focus to the window with the left mouse button or using the Alt + Tab keys. You can also click on the cross in the upper right corner to cancel.
In some cases, it is impossible to perform this task using the methods listed above - the process of using the clipboard hangs. In this case, you need to call the task manager and unload the process that is not responding. In the window that opens, on the "General" tab, right-click on the line with Windows Explorer and select "Go to Processes" in the context menu.
The focus will be on the highlighted line. Call the context menu again and select End Process. After this action, you can repeat the operations with the clipboard again (copy, move, delete).
If you accidentally deleted the desired file or folder, you need to open the system folder "Trash" and restore its contents. The shortcut to this directory is usually on the desktop. If it is absent, the restoration can be performed through the properties of the desktop.
