My old Acer Aspire 5610-4537 would allow me to create different folders in my documents section and within those folders I could right click on different files (word pad, microsoft office) and one of the options would be "move to folder". I used this option all the time. It is very usefull and important to me.
My new laptop, compaq cq60-224nr does not give me this option when I right click on files. The computer is useless to me without this option. Is there something I am missing? Do I need to change a setting?
Both have windows vista home premium 32 bit. Please advise.

get the desk top screen up
right click anywhere on a vacant patch that brings up a drop down box where you will see new folder
click on that and that folder appears on the desktop screen
rename it to suit what you want to call that folder
then when yo need a document saved -save to desktop and then move that file into the named folder
if you have documents already in say my documents click and hold and drag that file to the appropriate folder on desktop
if you have just the one monitor , get into the library area and open up my documents the drag each document to the folder in the library drop down area
Basic I know but with a bit of practice you will get to moving documents to folders very quickly
