I want to do something I think is very simple. Select one or more files, and move those files to a folder. Obviously I can do something like this from the terminal, but sometimes I want to just use finder and a trackpad if I already have the directory open in finder.
So, I select the files I want to move, and then try to click and drag these files as I would with a mouse on any other operating system. However on MacOS, as soon as I try to click to begin the drag motion, the operating system interprets the "click" as a single action, and so a preview window is opened on a single file, and the selection is lost.
How can I do what I think is a pretty basic task? This is honestly very frustrating.
