Move a File in the Finder

Sometimes you want to move a file in the Finder across volumes, not copy that file. Holding down the Command key while dragging ensures that the item is copied, and then its original deleted, adding up to a move.

Steve Kalkwarf writes "We received about a dozen Macintosh Classics earlier this year. I discovered that if I had them on an AppleTalk network with machines of any other type, they would crash when I connected to them with Apple's Likewise network distribution software (the best $150 I ever spent). If they were the only machines powered up, everything worked fine. Last night I found the problem. Apparently Apple took a bunch of their System 6 Macs and installed System 7 WITHOUT UPDATING THE HARD DISK DRIVER. When I unboxed the machines, I noticed the boxes had been opened and retaped, and one box had a serial number label (from the outside of the box) on the inside of the box that listed System 6 as the installed system. Running the 7.0.1 HD Setup program and updating the driver cleared everything up. If any TidBITS readers are having bizarre problems with Classics that came with System 7 installed, I'd check the driver."
