  1. How do I move a folder from one place to another on drive C?


    Drag and drop from one Windows Explorer directory to another doesn't work for me. Trial and error shows the following doesn't work either:

    If I right-click on the folder name, a selector view opens but it doesn't have an option for "Move to". It has an option for "Send to", but I don't see a facility to select a place, other than several pre-selected places, none of which I want.

    The selector view has an option for "Copy" but when I select it, nothing happens.

    :)
