Moving An EXE file

If you download files from the Internet, you will have noticed that many of these downloadable files are in EXE file format. Often these files are self-extracting zip files or self-contained programs.

If you download an EXE file to your Downloads folder and, later on decide you want to drag it to another folder, you will find that by default, Windows creates a Shortcut in the location that you drag the file to. Most people get around this problem by using Cut and Paste. An easier way to avoid this behaviour by holding down the Shift key while dragging the file. Shift tells Windows you want to MOVE the file.
