    Moving Files In The SkyDrive OneDrive Metro App


    I haven't used the OneDrive metro app much since windows 8 came out but I'm sure in the early days you could move files within the metro app by right clicking on a file (or swiping down) and you would get a 'move' button along the bottom menu. When did this option get removed? and why? when it's useful especially on a surface rt tablet.

    Hello livewire,

    If you like, you could also use "Cut" and "Paste" to move a file in the OneDrive app.

    Hope this helps,
