So it took me awhile to find this so I thought I’d pass it along.
Any PC simply uses Control+X to cut a file, Control+C to copy a file, and then Control+V to paste a file.
Is there a way to do this on a Mac? Yes.
To copy a file: Command+C and then go to the new location you want the file and press Command+V
(Note: This leaves a copy of the file in the place it currently is and then creates a new copy in whatever new folder you choose.)
To move a file: Command+C and and then go to the new location you want the file and press Command+Option+V
(Note: This takes the file from its current location and moves it to whatever new folder you choose.)
