Did you know you could make separate panes in one tab, and move files between 
the panes?  To do this, open a tab into the file system, then, at the bottom 
of the pane, right click.  A menu will come up asking if you want to split 
left/right or split up/down.  You can do this in EACH pane of the split as 
many times as you want, move to a different part of the file system in each 
pane, and move/copy files as you need.
