In the navigator I have a folder that contains programs files.
In order to make a copy of the working file I am working with, I do the following:
Right click to select a file, then choose copy, then I have to go to the top folder level, select that then right click and select paste, a window will pop up with the name of selected file and an added text by Eclipse "copy of xxxxxxx"
I edit the name and select the copy.

I have seen it done in a much DIRECT way as follows:
select the file THEN DRAG IT UP TO THE FOLDER Name then a popup window "Copy of..."

I am sure you agree with me this is much easier especially if you are doing it a lot.

How can I tweak Eclipse to do that ???

Your input will be greatly appreciated
