I sometimes download files to my desktop, test/view them and then move them to where they belong, using Ctrl+X and Ctrl+P. On occasion, I forget to close a program that's using such a file (e.g. a PDF reader). In those cases, some files move successfully, but others fail.

After I closed the offending programs, how can I redo/continue to paste the remaining files with one keyboard shortcut? I'm using Windows XP.


You can use 3rd party softwares to achieve that. For example, TeraCopy and Piky Basket are two good copy/paste management programs.
