    As a recent convert to Macs I am LOVING my experience, however I am missing one thing that I cant seem to find. On a PC, you can MOVE files witht he mouse from say a FlashDrive tothe hard drive or vice versa. however, I dont see an option to move files. How do i do this?

    THe way I have been doing it is copy to the new spot, then delete the old files. There has to be a better way.

    Click and Drag!

    You can drag files to new locations easily within Finder. If you need to go to a subfolder, hold the file over the main folder and the other folders will open up. It takes some getting used to, but after using OS X, you realize this is the way things are supposed to work...effortlessly and flawlessly.

    I definitely understand the drag n drop way but I, too have missed being able to right click on something and send it to another folder. I figured there probably is some way to add that to the right click menu, but it would probably require knowing some code, which would be over my head.

    Anyone know if there is some way to add this?

    I would actually like to know how to do this, too. I miss the 'Cut' command from Windows, but I've learned to deal. :) Dragging and dropping is easier.
