Lets be honest, sometimes moving files around in Windows can be a bit difficult. The normal action is right click, then cut, then right click, then paste. This can get very redundant and is easy to forget and it would be nice if it could be done in one action right? Well Microsoft actually put this in the OS but then haven’t made it as easy to use as it could be. If you follow these easy instructions you can add an option to the right-click menu which lets you copy or move a folder directly to its desired location.
All you have to do is download a registry file that does everything for you. Don’t worry these are perfectly safe if coming from the right source. You don’t want to installs these from anyone you don’t know or trust, but these are very safe.
1. Download the desired function (copy to, move to, or both)
2. Run the file once you have downloaded it
3. Say yes and OK to all prompts
4. You are all done! You now have added these options to your Right-Click Menu
5. Don’t like it? Use the remove files posted here as well to remove them from your menus.
How to use it:
So now you have added it, how do you use it? Well it is very simple. Right-click the folder you want to copy or move. Instead of going down to the normal options of copy, cut, etc, you click “Copy To” if you want to make a duplicate of the folder, or “Move To” if you want to simply move it to another location. Once you click this a new window will pop up and you use this to tell Windows where you want the folder to go. Click ok and you are all done!
Simply right click the file you downloaded and click extract all, then follow the prompts in the window that opens.
