Great Stuff - Please help me understand File Operations

1 discussion post
It couldn't stand the indexing issues in windows 7, so I am trying FileSeek to use instead of the W7 search.

I have questions and please excuse me if they were asked before. I saw some similar, but I didn't understand them totally.
  • [size=10pt]I want to do some cleaning up of my files and folder. So I do a search in FileSeek and it has found some files that I want to move to another folder
  • [size=10pt]I saw that I can click on "Windows Context Menu" for an individual file
  • [size=10pt]Even for an individual file, with the "Windows Context Menu"up, how can I cut and paste a file to a new folder, without having to go into Windows Explorer ?
  • [size=10pt]Can I do anything at all with the file search results, without having to repeat the search in Windows Explorer? Like a copy, paste, cut, move, etc ?

Thank you very much for your time and expertise.

Jon :-)

The Windows context menu can only be used for files in the same folder. However, FileSeek does provide "Copy Selected Files" and "Delete Selected Files" options. You can copy the files to the new folder, then delete them. It's not as perfect as cut/paste, but it's close and it should work for you. :)
