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

Last Updated: 2 years ago by BrodNeil

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.
