Paste to multiple locations

Post by harryray2 » Fri Sep 25, 2020 4:37 pm

I can search , highlight and delete files but I'm wondering if it's possible to also paste into the various different locations found?

If it's not possible now would it be possible to build this in to a future build?

It would save an awful lot of time and lots of clocking!!

Thanks.

If I understood your question correctly, that is possible.

Example:
- select a file (or multiple files)
- press CTRL+C
- select a folder
- press CTRL+V
- select another folder
- press CTRL+V

`Thanks, but I'm looking for a way to copy the file to multiple locations all at once...

This can be done e.g. with the file manager "Total Commander", which has an 'Everything' integration.
Creating link targets in a folder first is necessary.

Basically I consider such a task to be a job with a file manager rather than with a search tool.
