Tech Tip: Customize Move To and Copy To

Windows XP provides Windows Explorer with two file and folder management tools called Move To and Copy To. When you access any file or folder in Windows Explorer and have the Task Explorer Bar open, you'll see one of these commands appear under the File And Folder Tasks heading: Move/Copy This File or Move/Copy This Folder.

If you'd rather not use the Task Explorer Bar, you can place the Move To and Copy To commands on the standard toolbar. Here's how:

  1. Launch Windows Explorer.
  2. Right-click the standard toolbar, and select Customize.
  3. Scroll through the Available Toolbar Buttons list, and select either Move To or Copy To.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Use the Move Up or Move Down buttons to position the new buttons where you want them to appear on the toolbar.
  6. Select Close.
