I'm loading stuff onto a brand new laptop that is running Windows 7, copying it from my PC (XP) using a USB stick It's a rush job and I dont have time to learn Windows 7. Simple question: with the USB inserted in the laptop, how do I move a folder from it to a folder in a library?

Simplest way would be to open whichever library you want the folder from the USB to go in then 'drag and drop it' or you could also 'copy and paste' the folder.

Thanks Chronos - I knew it would be easy (but not so easy as XP!) I'd been trying using the "mouse" pad on the laptop and got so frustrated that I had to walk away! Much easier now I've bought a mouse.

I cannot use a touch pad either on a laptop and always use a mouse instead.

I wholeheartedly agree, separate Mouse is much better. I also use a full-size USB keyboard, much easier and saves wear and tear on laptop.
