    This seems really easy, but I can't figure it out.

    I need to move files that are in directory A in my webspace to directory B in my webspace.

    I don't want to have to get files and download them to my machine and then upload them to the new directory, surely there has to be an easier way.

    If directory B is in directory A you would just drag the files you want to move to the directory B folder icon.

    If directory B is a "sibling" of directory A (i.e. they are both in the same directory) you would do the move in two steps:

    1) First, enter directory A and drag the files in question to the open folder icon above the file list. That moves them into the parent directory.

    2) Then go up to the parent directory, refresh the file list if the newly moved files aren't visible, then drag those files onto the directory B folder icon.
