Windows 7: "moving" Files in win 7

"moving" Files in win 7

Back in the XP days, from windows explorer, I could use the command "select all" from the edit tab, followed by "move to" command from the edit tap, and then select a location and move the files there). I can't find the "move to" command in win 7. Is it still around? If so where is it?

thanks

Thanks....this is exactly what I was looking for! But this leads me to a follow on question. Why was this little file not included in win 7 from the start? Are there anymore of these little helpful files?
