Using the Desktop Briefcase
A briefcase is an icon included with Windows 98 on the desktop. No, it's not luggage; it's software. This special component allows you to move files between computers and keep the files in sync so that you don't accidentally replace an updated file with a file that's outdated. It's called the briefcase because you take it with you via floppy, removable hard disk, or on the network.
