I see an option to cut a folder, but at the destination:

  • no option to paste.

I can't find an option to move.

I searched and browsed the help that's integral to the server.


Please: can an end user move a folder? If so, how?


Without Microsoft Windows – with the web interface alone.

Without third party add-ons – with SharePoint alone.

  • If Microsoft's normal web interface to SharePoint lacks this functionality – if as an end user (not a SharePoint administrator) I can not move a folder – that simple answer "can't be done" may be acceptable. Oct 2, 2012 at 13:45
