Copy Items at Any Location From Windows 10 File Explorer


In previous Windows versions if you need to copy the items from one location to another location then what will you do?
Well, we select our file, copy it and then traverse to that location where we want to copy (paste) it manually. But now in Windows 10, Microsoft provides a great feature for copying an item using the File Explorer. There is a Copy To button in the file explorer that gives an opportunity to select the location.
