I’ve been a Mac user for a good ten years, and one of my gripes was about the inability to cut and paste files quickly in Finder.
Switching from a PC, I NEEDED this functionality and the first thing I did was to buy TotalFinder (which is now closing its doors soon).
Shortcut users all know the common copy and paste keystrokes: Command+C and Command+V
The real secret is cut and paste like on a Windows PC. Apple has changed the terminology to copy and move. Here’s how you do it.
- Select the files you want to move in Finder.
- Command-C (yes, I said, Command-C)
- Go to the folder you’d like to paste it in.
- Since you won’t believe it works, go back to your original folder and you’ll see the files are gone!
- Leave me a comment to say “It works like magic!”
