Hour 3. Managing Documents > Moving and Copying Documents

Moving and Copying Documents

As with creating folders, renaming files, and deleting files, you can move or copy files in either the Save As or Open dialog box. When you move a file, you remove it from its current location and place it in a new location. When you copy a file, you leave it in its current location and place a duplicate copy in the new location.

To move or copy a document, follow these steps:

1.
Make sure that the file you want to move or copy is not open, and then display either the Save As or the Open dialog box.

2.
Navigate to the folder containing the file you want to move or copy so that the folder appears in the Save In or Look In box.

3.
Right-click the file and choose Cut or Copy in the context menu. (You can also press Ctrl+X to cut or Ctrl+C to copy.)

4.
Navigate to the folder in which you want to paste the file so that the folder appears in the Save In or Look In box.

5.
Right-click a blank part of the main area in the dialog box and choose Paste in the context menu (or press Ctrl+V).

If you want to move or copy more than one document, select them all after step 2. Then right-click any of the files, and continue with step 3.
