Hi,

How do you move documents/files/graphics from Windows 7 document folder to specifically named folders on a flash drive? I tried highlighting said document and then clicked organized, then on the drop-down menu clicked send to. But it only shows the letter of the drive I wish to move the item to and not the individual folders. How can I put a document for say a cookie recipe in a folder on flash drive named Deserts? Or picture of my family into the folder named Family pics?

I know I'm doing something wrong. But windows help has been of no help. Thank you for reading and for any advice,

Ziva.

Open up My Computer. If you do not see a toolbar with File, Edit, View, Tools, Help click on Organize/Layout and check Menu Bar.

If you want to MOVE the files (which will delete them from your computer when you move to the flash drive) choose the file(s) then click File in the menu bar. Use MOVE TO FOLDER. Choose your flash drive and navigate to the folder where you want to put them.

If you want to COPY the files to the flash drive use COPY TO FOLDER under File.

Thanks for the info. But I don't seem to have a "move" option in the file menu folder. Just send to which sends a copy of item to drive. But it doesn't allow me to send it to a specific folder on the drive.

I finally figured it out. The move feature is in the 'edit' menu. Thanks for looking.
