    I really missed the ADD/MOVE possibility in Vista. And how easy to get it back. If only you know. Thanks!

    Thanks Brink. I've been looking for just this very option, as after dabbling in Linux I find it an extremely useful feature. I tried installing using Method 1. It hasn't worked for me, even with a restart. I'm using Vista Home Premium 32bit. What do you suggest I try next to get this working? Method 2?

    Hi Badcam,

    Welcome to Vista Forums.

    It will work for all Vista version. I would go ahead and do Method Two. You can Copy and Paste the codes from the tutorial to make it easier to do.

    Hi Manteca,

    Welcome to Vista Forums.

    The Move To Folder will act the same as Cut To Folder would. It will remove the file or folder from the original location and move it to the folder you selected.
