There are many ways to move files / folders (photos / documents / etc.):- To select multiple items, you can hold down the Command key while clicking on each item, then drag them to the Pictures folder.- Or you can click and hold on an empty space near the first item on the Desktop, then drag the cursor all over the items you want to move, then drag them to the Pictures folder.- Or you can select multiple items, then click on Edit menu at the top, then click on Copy. Then open Finder, then open Pictures. Then click on Edit menu at the top, then click on Paste (or Move here.)- Or you can select multiple items, then Control + click on any selected item, then click on option Cut. Then open Finder. Then open Pictures. Then Control + click on any empty space there, then click on Paste (or Move..)- Or you can select multiple items, then press at the same time the two keys Command and X on keyboard. Then click on Finder, then open Pictures. Then press at the same time the two keys Command and V on keyboard. That would move them from Desktop to Pictures.- Also, here are a instruction videos on how to organize (copy / cut / move) files / folders:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4TwDcVelpchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ANbO4K38k8- If you'd like to, I can connect remotely to your computer and show you how to do this directly for you, or I can move all your photos out of your Desktop directly for you.When you are available, please type at the box below, then click on the Send button below to communicate with me, so I can help further.
