I you copy/paste some files into a directory that already contains files with the same name you'll get a confirmation dialog "There is already a file with the same name in this location..."

To replace all files you have to check "Do this for the next N conflicts" and then click on "Copy and Replace".

Is there a keyboard shortcut for this (like there was in XP where you could simply press 'a')?

Alt+D, Tab, Enter.

If I do this it will select 'Skip' (after the tab) instead of 'copy and replace'. I have to press tab three times (is that what you meant?) to get to 'copy and replace' ... but that's not the quick shortcut I was looking for. – laktak Jan 27 '10 at 15:44

Alt+D will select the option.

The description has an underlined "D" on "Do this for the next N conflicts."

This will enable the checkbox but what's the shortcut for "Copy and Replace"? – laktak Jan 27 '10 at 13:02

Alt+D checks the box, but you still need to hit Enter. Pressing "A" was perfect. I actually work on computers all day, and that extra keystroke is annoying as hell.
