In a documents folder, how do you move one folder (ex. human resources folder into a corporate office folder)


2 Answers 2


Use windows explorer, in 2010/2013 it's found on the library tab of the library (and only works in IE on windows)

  • Will the documents in the folder you are moving get checked out or will they remain checked in? Commented Mar 10, 2015 at 21:52
  1. Select the Library view from the top window bar Library Tools.

  2. Select Datasheet View within the View Format section of the Ribbon Bar.

  3. Select Open with Explorer within the Connect and Export section of the Ribbon Bar.

  4. An MS Explorer window will open.

  5. Move files/folders in the same way as with the file system Explorer.

  • Works perfectly!
