Moving an Excel Spreadsheet to Another Folder on Windows
1. Click on the File tab at the top left of the screen.
2. Select the Save As option from the window that appears.
3. A window will open up with the name of the current folder in which the spreadsheet is being saved.
4. To move the spreadsheet to another folder, click the Browse icon next to the File name field at the bottom of the window.
5. A new window will appear which allows you to select the folder for the spreadsheet. This can be a folder within the current folder, or a completely different folder located elsewhere on your hard drive.
6. Navigate to the folder where the spreadsheet should be saved and then click the Save button.
7. The spreadsheet will now be moved to the selected folder.
If you would like to move multiple spreadsheets to the same folder, you can do so in one step by selecting all the desired spreadsheets before clicking the Browse button. To select multiple files, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on each spreadsheet. With multiple files selected, you will be able to move them all to the chosen location by following the steps above.
In some cases, you may need to perform the same operation with a large number of spreadsheets. In this case, you can use Windows’ bulk file transfer utility, which allows you to copy or move multiple files or folders to an alternative location in a single operation. This can be done by pressing Ctrl+A to select all the items in the folder, followed by Ctrl+X to cut them, and then navigating to the target folder and using Ctrl+V to paste them into the new location.
Alternatively, if you are using Windows 10, you can also make use of its Faster Move feature, which allows you to quickly move files from one place to another without having to navigate through multiple layers of folders. This is done by selecting the files or folders that need to be moved and then drag and dropping them to the desired location.
Finally, if you would like to create a shortcut to the spreadsheets, you can do this by right-clicking on the relevant files or folders, selecting ‘Create shortcut’ and then choosing where you would like the shortcut to be saved. You can then access the files wherever you have saved the shortcut.
In conclusion, moving an Excel spreadsheet to another folder on Windows is relatively straightforward. Depending on the number of spreadsheets you need to move, the process can be completed with either the standard Windows Save As command or by making use of the copy/cut and paste, or drag and drop functions. Additionally, you can also create shortcuts to the spreadsheets in order to access them more quickly.
