    OK.. I know this is probably a silly question... but, I can't seem to get it to work.

    I emailed a Voice Memo sound clip of my latest CBG to my gmail account. I opened the email and downloaded the file... it went into the downloads folder. I now want to save/drag it to a folder in my finder window. It will NOT go and I have no obvious options when I right-click the icon in the downloads folder. Can this be done?? My guess is yes and probably pretty simple too.

    Thanks for the help;

    Try Copying the file (Command C) and then pasting it into the new folder (Command V). Not sure why you can't drag it...

    Thanks Miles01110, But... no dice. All I get is a "Bong" and it wont go. This is really weird to me.
