I'm new to the MAC and OSX. I've got a lot of work to do which involves moving large numbers of files from on place to another. I'm used to using the simple cut and paste function in MS Windows Explorer. OS 10.3 does not seem to allow for this. It seems like it will only let me COPY and paste files. This is frustrating because I am wanting to move files from say an external HD to an internal HD and so on and I always have to go back and delete the files from the external HD (because I am using the external HD to go to another computer and get more data and then bring it to my MAC). Am I an idiot? Why does this seem so difficult. Am I always in a rush and have not taken the time to learn simple file manipulation functions from MAC OSX help? Not true completely. I have researched it to some extent. Also, am I an idiot for not searching the forums for the answer to this question before starting a new thread?
