How to Cut-and-Paste Files and Folders in Mac

For users who are used to PC, this may be daunting in the beginning when using Mac.  PC users are used to using the shortcuts ctrl+c to copy, ctrl+x to cut, ctrl+v to paste, ctrl+a to select all.

Copy-pasting in Mac may seem be similar using command+c to copy and command+v to paste.  But what about the cut-and-paste feature in PC that is ctrl+x to cut and ctrl+v to paste.

When using mac, this is how you do it, use command+c to copy and use command+option+v to tell Mac that you’d like to cut what you have just copied when pasting it to the new location.

Hope this is clear.

Let me know what you think.
