    Correct Answer
    A. To reduce the size of the File or Folder so it takes up less space on the computer
    Explanation
    Compressing a file or folder is done in order to reduce its size, allowing it to take up less space on the computer's storage. This can be beneficial in various ways, such as saving disk space, optimizing storage capacity, and making it easier to transfer or share the file or folder. Compressed files can also be more efficiently stored and backed up, as well as downloaded or uploaded faster over the internet.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Does searching by "Date Last Modified" also locate files and folders based on their creation dates?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    When searching by "Date Last Modified," the search function specifically looks for files and folders based on the date and time they were last modified, not their creation dates. This means that if a file or folder was created on a certain date but has not been modified since then, it may not be included in the search results. Therefore, while searching by "Date Last Modified" can provide information on when files were last changed, it does not necessarily reflect their creation dates.

    A. Trojan
    Explanation
    A Trojan is a type of malware that disguises itself as a legitimate program or file in order to gain unauthorized access to a computer system. Once inside, it can perform various malicious activities such as stealing sensitive information, modifying or deleting files, and even giving remote control of the system to an attacker. Unlike a firewall or AVG (antivirus software), which are security measures designed to protect against malware, a Trojan is itself a form of malware.

This view displays a list of files and folders with columns that provide information about each item, including its name, size, type, and date modified.

In this case, a USB drive is considered a removable device because it can be plugged into a computer's USB port and easily removed when not in use.

The "Accessories" menu typically contains utilities and tools such as Notepad, Paint, Calculator, etc., but not the File Explorer. Therefore, the statement is false.
