Sure. Let's say you have a file called "lexington.txt". That file is located at your /home/user/temp and you want to change it to your /home/user/docs. This is the command:
cp /home/temp/lexington.txt /home/user/docs
Basically, it's cp /file to copy /destination
To move a file, use mv instead of cp. rm will delete the file. Some hints:
- You don't have to type the hole destination or name of the file, type a few "characters" as lexin... then press TAB. Linux will autocomplete the file for you .
- Some files cannot be moved/copied if you are not root.
