Thread: Copying file to another folder in Vista

    Default Copying file to another folder in Vista

    How do you copy a file to another folder in Vista? I don't mean by
    right-clicking or by dragging and dropping.



    Instead, I would like to be able to do it in the way that you could so it in
    XP. Namely, by highlighting the file, going to the File or Edit menu (I
    can't remember which one), and copying it (or cuting if you prefer) to a new
    location.

    In the Windows Dialog in Vista, I don't see either the File or the Edit
    menu.

    Is there an Organize button? If so, click that, then go to Layout, then
    turn on 'Menu Bar'.

    Select organise and then layout and menu bar and you will have the XP menu bar back
    -- later. Sorry already dealt with I see.

    Since the current OS we're referring to is Vista,
    You WONT "have the XP Menu Bar back".
    Instead, you will have the "VISTA menubar displaying".

    Hi John,

    One of the most useful things you can do is to add Copy To and Move To
    functions to your right -click menu. See this tutorial for how to do it
    :

    *Context Menu - Add COPY TO FOLDER and MOVE TO FOLDER *
