How to Copy on Windows?
- Copying Files From One Location To Another – The first step in the process is copying your file from one location to another. To do this, locate the file you want to copy in File Explorer or other file management program. Right-click on the file and select “Copy” from the menu that appears. You’ll then need to navigate to where you’d like to copy the file and right-click again. This time, select “Paste” from the menu that appears. After doing this, your file will be copied over to your chosen destination folder.
- Moving Files From One Location To Another – If you’d like to move a file instead of copying it, all you need to do is repeat these steps but select “Move” instead of “Copy”. This will move the selected file from its original location into your chosen destination folder without leaving a duplicate behind in its original location.
- Copying Multiple Files At Once – If you’d like to copy multiple files at once, simply hold down the Ctrl key while selecting each individual file that you want to copy. Once all of your desired files are highlighted, right-click on one of them and select either “Copy” or “Move” (depending on which action you would like). Next, navigate to where you’d like these files copied or moved and right-click again before selecting “Paste” from the menu that appears. Your selected files will then be copied/moved into their new location all at once!

By following our simple step-by-step guide above, you’ll have no trouble copying or moving individual or multiple files between different locations on your computer with ease!
