My entire life - I was a Windows user but I just moved to Mac OS X. But there is one thing I miss: Having the ability to move files just using my keyboard. Is that possible on a Mac (or Mac Finder)?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If keyboard shortcuts are what you prefer, here’s what you’ll do. Select the file you want to move and press Command-C (Edit> Copy). Then go to the location where you’d like to place the item and press Option-Command-V (the shortcut for Edit> Move Item Here, which is only visible if you hold down the Option key when you’re looking at the Edit menu).


or using this command but it requires the full access path.

mv <current path>  <destination path>

    You can use terminal to do the job. Open terminal and use rsync to copy files. It can help to copy massive data together. For more command line help, please link here: https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT201236
