Windows 7: 'Move to'.....'copy to'......

'Move to'.....'copy to'......

Does W7 have any equivalent for the move to...copy to....functions in XP???

All 7 seems to do is to create a shortcut which means retaining everything in their original file permanently.....unnecessarily doubling storage needs.

SO SO useful for moving/copying complex (BIG!!) drawings to/from different files efficiently!!!!!!

Best regards to all

Hello Pete.

This tutorial should show you the way.

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Once you've set things up it's just a simple right-click on the relevant document, then choose Move To or Copy To.
