COPY a file to another folder (don't just MOVE it)

When you drag a file from one place to another, you move the original file. But sometimes you don't want to move the original file—sometimes you want a copy of that same file in another folder. The technique below makes a copy of a file as you drag it from one place to another. This is essentially the same as making a duplicate (as described above), but it's a shortcut. You can skip this for now if you want—you'll probably find this tip more useful in a month or two.

Note

You can surprise your Mac-user friends by knowing this trick—they might not know it!
