File Delete/Paste W10

Since the demise of my trusty PC (self-build in 2012) where the power supply seemingly took out the motherboard, a couple of HDDs amongst other things I have had to start again with a new self-build but with W10 Pro. Yeah, I know I said I would never use it but with W7 support being discontinued early next year it left me with no choice. In fact, using the latest version (1903) I have things looking more like W7 with the benefits offered by W10 plus the great thing was I could use my W7 Pro licence to activate W10 Pro saving up to £200!

 

Anyway, under  W7 Pro I could use Alt+E then Alt+V to move a file/folder with ease. This brought up a dialogue box in which I could choose where to move the file to including creating a new folder(s). This was very quick and convenient but seems absent in W10 Pro. All my searching has not found a solution - is there something similar?

 

New build specs (if anyone's interested):

Cooler Master 625S Case

ASUS X470 Prime Pro MB

AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8-Core CPU

ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti 4GB DDR5 GPU
120GB Crucial BX500 SSD for temp files, etc.

32GB (2x16GB) Ballistix Sport DDR4 3000MT/s RAM

Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB SSD for System files, etc.

Corsair 750W 80 Plus Gold fully modular PSU

Syba PCIe 4 Port SATA III Controller Card

2 x 2TB 7200 HDDs

plus from old PC

3  x SSD (240,100, 60GB)

2 x HDDs (2TB and 500GB)

Re: File Delete/Paste W10

Surely CTRL+X, CTRL+V (cut & paste from source to destination) works?

Does for me on all Linux file managers that I've tried, anyway.

Yes, that works but if you want to create a new folder at the destination then that has to be done first.

Re: File Delete/Paste W10

Those short cut keys are not part of a standard Windows install, it must have been an add-on of some sort, Power Toys possibly?

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

I don't remember having an add-on but it's not impossible. Haven't heard of Power Toys.
