If you are looking to cut n paste files within a single Finder window, a la CTL-X, CTL-V on Windows, this just isn't supported. Sometimes you can achieve a similar result by putting your Finder Window into list mode, and then dragging the file between folders that are also visible in the same window. This only works however when the destination folder is in near proximity to the source folder for the file. Other than that, it is two windows and drag.

You may wish to look at a Finder replacement for File Manager, perhaps a good two pane file manager where you have direct "move" vs. "copy" commands. I know that there are several of them out there. Can anyone suggest their favorite?
