    [HELP] Wanting to move video files into a master directory/folder


    I have 1000 videos that are all inside directories. Ex. 13212/video1.avi, 34234/video2.avi, 79443/video3.avi, etc

    I have over 1000 videos that are individually inside it's own random folder name.

    I would like to know if Windows 10 has any features or command line commands that I can use to get all of the videos sitting inside one master directory instead.

    "MASTER_DIRECTORY/video1.avi, MASTER_DIRECTORY/video2.avi," etc

    File Explorer Search


    If all of the videos directories are inside a directory you could use the File Explorer search to list the files.
    You could then select them all and then drag them to the desired directory.

    If your setup is something like this:
    MASTER_DIRECTORY/DIR1/video1.avi
    MASTER_DIRECTORY/DIR2/video2.avi

    You could do this:

    1. Search for *.avi
    2. When the search finishes select all of the files ("Ctrl + A")
    3. Drag them to the "MASTER_DIRECTORY" (or any other directory) in the Navigation pane.


    In this example (in W7) I'm trying to move all of the mp4 files to the top level directory (Random):

    The procedure should be the same in W10.
