moving files into library folder

I have tried everything I can think of, and can't do this. I want to put all my .xls files into a library folder. Everytime I try to do this. Excel opens before I can move anything. My files are scattered all over various drives, and I want them all together.I am sure I am missing something very simple. Please help?
