Hi,


considering that you can have many files either on your "Download folder" or "Document folder", how is it possible to cut/copy&paste files/images from within the bottom section of those folders to the top section of that folder?

You mean within a folder, move the files around or from a folder to a parent folder?

Either way, just drag it with your mouse to wherever you want it. If you want to make a copy and move that, just right or ctrl-click, create duplicate and move that.

It depends on the view you have selected.
Are you viewing windows in Icon View? Column View? List View? Cover Flow?

The answer for the last three is similar. Items that you want at the top of the list should be renamed, sort of. Just put a space in front of the item's name and it will rise to the top. Watch out! They could sink to the bottom!!! The little arrowhead reverses the order.
