Now that we have new folders, let's put something in them. So, the easy way to do this is if my folder is right here, and the files that I want to put in it are up here, I can do something very simple, and it's called drag and drop. So, I can take this and I can drag it, and do you see how I have that blue line, "Work Files" is highlighted? That's where that file now is going to land. So, I'm going to simply drop. And now if I open it, you see there is my file.
This is my navigation up here. I'm going to go back one, here's "Documents", back I go. Now, let's say I have files and folders in different places. Here is my desktop, and I want to get rid of this, and I want to put it in this folder. I can open the folder, I can take this, and I can drag it, and I can drop it on there. The other option I have is if they're in two separate spots, "File", open a new window. Now I have two windows beside me. So, here I've got my work files, and over here I've got this.
And I'm going to drag this, and I'm going to drop it over here on the other window. Now I'm moving things around. So, you can do that. You can have two separate locations on your computer opened up in two windows, and you can drag and drop your files all you want. Be careful, you can do these in groups, So at this point, I've only been selecting one. You can select them all, just like that. Again, that's just holding down your left mouse button, and drag, and you get a blue box, and then you can drag them all at the same time.
And you see? It says number three. There are three files there, and I can drag them and move them all at the same time, and when I do that, see how that works? And they're all selected and they're all highlighted, so I can drag them all back to. So that's how you drag and drop.
