Several ways to do it. Try this method:

Right click on the file you wish to copy.
Click on 'Copy'.
Then navigate to where you want to copy the file to.
Right click.
Click on 'Paste'.

Selection Tips:
  • To select several individual files: Push CTRL and hold. Then select files by clicking on them.
  • To select a few files in a row: Click on the first file, push and hold 'Shift' key, click on the last file. All files in between (inclusive) will be selected.
Once selected, you must copy by right clicking on any one of the selected files and then clicking on 'copy', and then paste as directed above.

  • Select 'All' : CTRL + A
  • Copy : CTRL + C
  • Paste: CTRL + V
Another Tip:
  • To move a file, right click on it and choose 'Cut', then paste as directed above. This will delete the file from it's original spot as well as paste it to it's new location.

First of all I'd like to say welcome to Bleeping Computer. In reference to your question, files are moved by a term called dragging and dropping. Also duplicate files can be created and those are referred to as copied files. I'll add a link here that has some screenshots and explains it in more detail. File moving link here. If you still need more information or explanation, please post back. Thats what Bleeping Computer is all about.
