Chapter 2. Using the Finder > Moving and Copying Files and Folders

2.10. Moving and Copying Files and Folders

To move an item from one folder to another, just click and drag it to another location in the filesystem. For this, it's sometimes easier to open two Finder windows, one that contains the item you want to move, and the other set to the location where you want to move it.

If you drop an icon in the same window it started in, its position in the filesystem doesn't change at all. However, if you're in Icon View, the position of the icon shifts to wherever you dropped the item.
