    I'm not really a n00b user to OSX but one things ive always wanted to do but wasen't sure if it was possible was using a Cut function to move files. I was extremely fast in XP because I was able to move files extremely quick that way. I just feel like everything takes 100% longer having to "move" the files manually instead of cut, open folder, paste. Is there a script, third party program, or something that can allow me to do this? I hope so because this is really annoying me haha.

    Open Automator.
    In the list on the left, select "Finder". This will show all finder actions.
    Select "Ask for Finder Items" and drag it to the left. Click the "Allow multiple selection" check box.
    Select "Move Finder items". Select Options and check "Show action when run"

    Test the workflow by selecting Run, and modify if it doesn't suit you.

    When it's working the way you want, select File/Save As Plug-in enter your own name for it, and make sure it's saved as a plugin for Finder. Then when you want to move files, select one or more in Finder, right (Ctrl) click and select Automator and the action you just saved.
