Copying and moving folders and files

There are two methods available for copying files in Orion. The first method uses the clipboard:

  1. Select the files and folders to copy
  2. Hit Ctrl+C to copy the list of files
  3. Browse to the folder you want to copy into. Hit Ctrl+V to paste the files into this folder

You can also copy and move files using menu commands.

  1. Select the files and folders to copy or move
  2. Select Copy to or Move to from the Actions menu
  3. Select a destination from the sub-menu, or click Choose folder to pick a different destination.

Hint: Create a Favorite for any folder you frequently copy or move files into. Favorites are always displayed as destinations in the Copy to and Move to menus, so this saves you some extra navigation to select your destination folder.
