If you have multiple drives, performing this operation on each one can be time consuming. Fortunately, Windows XP can provide the same type of pie chart display for all your drives in one tabbed dialog box. Here’s how:
- Open My Computer.
- Hold down [Ctrl] and select each one of the drive icons (Figure A).
- Right-click the last one and select Properties.
Hold down [Ctrl] and select each drive you want to display.
The resulting dialog box will have a tab containing a pie chart for each drive (Figure B). You can use this technique with removable as well as floppy disk drives.
A pie chart appears for each drive.
Note: This tip applies to both Windows XP Home and Professional editions.
