    been back to mac for a few years now but i still miss my "right click - move to (folder)" command from winxp. did a search for "finder move menu item" and found the solution...for osx 10.5.8. Thus the "AHHH!" in the title. Abracode is available but it uses some kind of shortcut thing that i dont really understand am pretty sure will not give me the simplicity of a "move to" option when i right click. any help for snow leopard would be much appreciated. oh yea, and i know how to move while holding the "apple" key. thanks again. after flippin through the posts here, gotta wonder if going back to plain old leopard might be an option.

    Investigate the Services Menu. I saw another post here describing how to add items to contextual menus.

    In OSX, I've never found a reliable way to do this. Some 3rd party finder replacements offer this, but again it is iffy in my experience. I've just learned to do without it and found that utilities and shortcuts that offer better windows management will have to do until Apple ever changes it's mind about this which seems unlikely.

    Open 2 Finder windows with:
    - 1 opened your source files you want to move,
    - 1 opened your destination folder,
    and drag and drop the files you want to move from one screen to the other.

    You can easily search your files through the Spotlight menu (Shortcut: Command-Spacebar). Once you get used to Spotlight it replaces many Finder functions you ever needed.
