You need to be able to do this in order to move files around, but the only way I can find to do this in Bodhi4 is to plug in a thumbdrive.  Surely there's an easier way?

Use Dual Pane mode in PCManFM to achieve this - simply press F3.

Thanks Roger,

 

I've been using pcmanfm for years in PCLinuxOS and nerver discovered this (it works there too).  However it's easy there to launch two copies at once so I never needed it.

CTRL -N works for me, and mv from-dir/object-name destination-dir works too. You don't need two windows.


Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything

I use my middle mouse button and open tabs.

 

I should really clarify that. I open pcmanfm and then click the middle mouse button either on a folder in the current window or middle mouse click on one of the bookmarks on the left.
