(2) In word processing and graphics, to relocate text and images to another part of the document or drawing.

(3) An external DOS/Windows command that moves a file to a new location (it copies first, then deletes the source file). Widely used by Windows programmers and power users, the syntax is like the Copy command. The following example moves the MYBUDGET spreadsheet into the \NEXTYEAR folder. See copy.
