Moving, Renaming, and Deleting Files
To Move a File
At some time, you may want to move a i le from one folder, called the source folder, to another, called the
destination. When you move a i le, it no longer appears in the original folder. If the destination and the source
folders are on the same disk drive, you can move a i le by dragging it. If the folders are on different disk drives, then
you will need to right-drag the i le. The following step moves the Brain Busters Rental Summary i le from the Excel
folder to the OneNote folder.

In Windows Explorer, navigate to
the location of the i le to be moved
(in this case, the Excel folder in the

To Delete a File
A i nal task you may want to perform is to delete a i le. Exercise extreme caution when deleting a i le or i les.

you empty the Recycle Bin. If you delete a i le from removable media, such as a USB l ash drive, the i le is deleted
permanently. The next steps delete the Koala Exhibit Gala i le from the PowerPoint folder.
