Windows 7: lost command on the edit menu

lost command on the edit menu

My question was,

'how do I add specific locations to the Move To menu?'

The answer I found was,

'In explorer select a file or folder, click on edit, select move to folder and choose create new folder.'

Doing that I do not see 'move to folder' in the edit menu.

So, my question is,

is that the right answer, and if it is, how do get that command back on the edit menu?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

I did as in your example I selected a file then went to Edit and down to Move to folder and when the move window opened up I first selected the Desktop (as an example) and then clicked on New folder and then Click on the Move button and it moved that file I selected to the New folder on the Desktop. Have a look at my screen shots.

Hello Eckbar, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, this might serve as a workaround.

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you! It's good to know that works.

Now my problem is,

when I go to the Edit menu, 'Copy to folder' and 'Move to folder' aren't there.

Try Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to 3 times with a reboot after each scan.
