However, one thing I cannot figure out. I need to move some files.
With XP, I could choose the file, and was given the option to move or copy. Obviously I would choose move, and the file would go where I wanted it to be.
I do not see any options for MOVE in Win7. The only choices I'm offered are CUT and COPY.
I choose Copy. I then have to go to My Documents, open up the folder where I want the file to be, then Paste.
Then back to the original location to delete the file I just copied.
OR I can choose CUT, paste into the new file, and the one in the original location is deleted.
I'm used to a couple of clicks to move. I didn't have to go back and forth to various folders in order to move a file.
So HOW (if it can be done) do I MOVE something?
I'm in the process of cleaning up My Documents. Some .txt files need to go to a folder I have for that. I have pics that need to go to My Pictures. And right now, I am highlighting all my .txt files, opening up Saved Text, pasting them in there, then have to copy or cut them to put them in sub-folders. Same thing with my pics. I'd like to use the move function to send them straight to the sub-folders.
Some of the pictures need to be moved to my daughter's My Pictures. So that means I have to do the copy or cut, go to My Computer/Users/Her account/Her pictures, then paste.
If someone will enlighten on how to move or tell me it cannot be done, I would appreciate it very much.
edit to add: problem resolved, see my post below.
