Hi Guys,

I have tried to use the :cmd: X shortcut to cut and paste items but it only seems to be copying the file, not actually moving it.

Am I doing something wrong???

Move by dragging/dropping.

Finder does not support Cut and Paste of files, sorry.

Ah no wonder!

Thanks guys.

Do you recommend I then have two windows open to drag and drop then?
That will move the file not copy yeh?

Yes that is correct.

Or use column view in Finder instead of two Finder windows.

Or install an application that supports cut and paste. I believe pathfinder is a finder replacement that does this as well as some other nifty stuff.
