Using a File Manager

Instead of moving files around by hand, you can use a file manager. If you move a lot of files around, a file manager can make your work more efficient. There are text-based file managers, such as GNU Midnight Commander (mc), and a number of file managers for the X Window system (for example gmc for the X Window version of GNU Midnight Commander).

Describing each of these is outside the scope of this book, but you may want to try them out if the command line doesn't meet your needs.
