Re: Moving Files

John

The message below yours here is a response to Richard's post about the 
control c and control x commands for copying and cutting files and folders, 
not in the email program, but in Windows Explorer.  See?  It has nothing to 
do with your own question about how to move an email around within Outlook 
or Outlook Express.  Those are completely different from anything to do with 
file management in Window Explorer, where you're managing the files and 
folders on your hard drive.  what you and I were talking about was not that, 
but moving email messages within Outlook Express.  That's what Control shift 
V is for.  Hope that's clear, now.

Again, my message below is a response to Richard about the other thing, not 
a message to you about moving Outlook Express messages.

Thanks.

Hello Yardbird,
I was already aware of the windows menu method of copying or moving to
folders, however, I am too lazy to go into the menu all of the time and
wanted to know the control shift V keystroke to avoid hitting alt + E and
then control F or control V. Nothing more than searching for efficiency and
I greatly appreciated the help.
Take care,
John

Hi Richard,

I'm not sure what you're explaining here.  First of all, Control C is simply

the keyboard command for the Copy command in that menu, and Control X is the

keyboard equivalent of the Move item.  Exactly the same thing.  Sure, if
someone really wants to bother opening the menu and doing these things from
there, it's a free country.  But even I, who often encourages Jaws users to
explore their menus for a sense of program design and context, feels that in

this case, it's a bit silly to bother with the menu commands.  I don't think

anyone much does that.  But as I say, it's not against the law, God forbid I

should get flamed for having an opinion.

And the distinction you explain between copy and move is what anyone is
supposed to know is the difference between copy and move.  Copy puts
something into the Clipboard, and there it stays unless displaced by
something else (unless you're using the handy-dandy Jaws multiple copy
Clipboard doobie with Windows C instead of Control C), and you can paste it
as many times as you like from the clipboard.  Until you displace it.

"Move," of course, means that the item goes to the clipboard but is deleted
from there, and from its source, as soon as you paste it.

But, Richard, this is just the ordinary information about how this works in
Windows.  It's not a special Jaws trick or esoteric detail.  So I'm not sure

where you're coming from.  It's just how these things work.

Hi,
Also please note that when using windows explorer under the edit menu there
is both a selection for copy to folder and move to folder options.

Using the control + x command will just put the file on the clipboard until
you paste it somewhere. Then it will remove it from where it originally was.

Both ways work. Just what the user feels comfortable with.

The keystroke of control + shift + v seems to only work in OE and probably
works in outlook too.

Rich

  p.S.

  John, I'm sorry.  Woke up late and haven't had enough coffee.  The
keystroke
  I gave is indeed the one you're trying to remember.  But if it works in
  Windows Explorer, then that'll be a surprise to me.  Of course Control X
is
  how you move selected files and folders there.  Sorry.  Wasn't thinking
  clearly.

  Hello,

  Someone posted a message with a keystroke to move files or folders and I
  have lost the email. Can someone tell me what the keystroke was?

  Take care,

  John
