Cut & Paste Files on a Mac!

Yes Virginia! There Is A Copy-Paste Function To Move Files In The Mac OS!

I’d love to take credit for this one, but the source is another website. My Adam the computer science major and I debated this one. I have to admit Adam, you were correct!

The Short Answer

If you want the short answer and are a seasoned Mac user:

  1. Select files you want to move in the Finder.
  2. Select “copy” or use the key commands “Command-C”
  3. Open the place where you wish to move the files to in the Finder.
  4. When you wish to move them, instead of the standard copy command “Command-V” instead use”Command-Option-“V””
  5. The files will be moved to the new location.
