Windows 7: Looking For Some Help and Advice on Moving Away From Windows XP

Looking For Some Help and Advice on Moving Away From Windows XP

I'm glad to be apart of this forum because I'm in need of some help and suggestions. Also, I do apologize if this isn't the most proper place to post this topic

I currently have Windows XP and I really, really enjoy Windows XP. Unfortunately we all know in a week Microsoft will no longer support XP so I'm in a bind. I like Windows XP because in the My Pictures folder, when you click on a pic or multiple pics, it gives you the option in the File and Folder Task box, it gives you the option of move this file. In the other Microsoft OS, ( i.e.; Windows 7 and Windows 8 ), I haven't seen this option. I'm a old - school wrestling fan, a belt mark and I have between 15,000 and 20,000 pics of championship belt pic's from many different pro wrestling promotions throughout the years

Anyways, it's so, so much easier on me when I have the ability to click on move this file, it saves me a tremendous amount of time organizing all of my belt pics. My question is, is the " move this file " option available in either Windows 7 or Windows 8, heck is in Windows Vista?

I have some other questions I will post later but I would appreciate any help
