Moving Folders and Files

As you create more and more documents, you might need to do some rearranging. For example, say you have several documents all within one folder, and you decide it makes sense to create subfolders to further organize and categorize the files. You can create a new folder and then move files (or folders) to this new folder.

To move a file or folder, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the file you want to move and click Cut.
  2. Navigate the folder where you want to move the file.
  3. Right-click a blank area of the file list and click Paste.
  4. The file is pasted to the new location.

If you make a mistake, you can undo the move by right-clicking a blank area of the file window and then clicking Undo Move. (Or press the shortcut key Ctrl+Z.)
