    New to Android and starting to work on file mgmt. I set up some subfolders on my SD card for pictures. I have been moving pictures from one folder to another, but I can only move one at a time. Is there a way to select multiple picture files and move them to another folder (like "Select All" with Windows)? This is the sequence I've been following: Use the Edit Icon in the Astro taskbar, select Move, then going to the directory folder I want to move them, and hit Paste. Moving one file at a time is taking for ever.

    Doh! Nevermind, just found the Multi Icon on the taskbar which allows you to select multiple files.

    What I have been doing is tapping on "Multi", then select all the folders or files or pictures I want moved and then go to "Edit" to move.
    Also if you are on a directory, with lots of pictures, if you tap on "mEnu" then "Edit" there is a Select All option.
    Hope it helps.
