    Probably a really stupid question so I apologise in advance.

    I have been collating files and documents over the past few months. I have decided to keep them in a more organised fashion so I created a folder for films, music, etc and then I want to put further folders in the folders so I can keep certain files together.

    I have created the folder but cant seem to move the files in to it - I can copy it then paste it but that seems a bit long winded just to move a file in to another folder (folder within folder.)

    Any ideas.

    Thanks.

    If you haven't tried copy-paste yet what other method have you tried? I'm confused!

    Then you need to finder windows open, one window being the original location and the second window being the destination window. Then just drag the file from one window to the other.
