MoveCM is a menu bar application, service and contextual menu item for moving, copying, aliasing, hard linking and archiving (zip compressing) files and folders quickly into common folders. i.e. without the need to drag and drop them, use aliases, etc. It is a generalization of the Finder's "Move to Trash" contextual menu item, you can apply it to any folder you like. Use the System Preference pane to specify destination folders. The menu bar application or contextual menu will then consist of menu items that correspond to these destinations. Control click on one or more files and/or folders in the Finder, select a destination from more...

What's New

Version 1.2.3:
  • MoveMBI: Fixed a user discovered problem with the menu items "Add Folder" and "Remove Folder" - the preferences window folder list was not updated when these menu items were selected, resulting in them having no effect.
  • MoveMBI: Removed the option "Make as submenu" from the Settings pane of preferences since it is not applicable to the menu bar app, only the contextual menu.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later

The provided link only dumps you at the Limit Point website, where you will NOT find MoveCM.

Limit Point has, ahem, limited what they offer these days and essentially scoured out their website to a dead minimum.

Therefore, HUH?

MoveMBI works like a charm, under Mac OS X 10.6. I use it more than 10 times each day.
My only grief is that sometimes, MoveMBI "looses" its destination folders… not all folders, not always the same, but they are gone from the Menu. It's not a big work to put them back again, but maybe this could be changed in a future version…
Thanks for the good work, keep goin'

I downloaded the application this morming to demo it. After a couple of hours of using it I decided that this was exactly what I was looking for; especially the MOVE TO functionality.

I made my donation and received my password within minutes. I'm on an iMac and using OS X (10.6.4)

Unfortunately, QuickAccessCM has not been updated since November 2007. Which means it won't work in Snow Leopard. Remarkably, FinderPop still does work in OS X 10.6.x, which makes it an excellent alternative to QuickAccessCM and MoveCM. Unlike other contextual menu items adapted to use the Services menu in SL, FinderPop still works inline in the contextual menu and invisibly in the menu bar (by clicking on any open space). I recommend it highly.

Do NOT download this...

until you have tried the marvellous QuickAccessCM from http://free.abracode.com/cmworkshop/quick_access.html which does a heck of a lot more than just move things, is beautiful to use, and is free!

BTW, be aware that Snow Leopard has no Contextual Menus.

"BTW, be aware that Snow Leopard has no Contextual Menus." This is not exactly true. Snow Leopard does have contextual menus; but, unlike earlier versions of OS X, it does not directly support third-party contextual menu items. Developers are getting around this handicap by making the features of their no longer functional contextual menu items available through the Services menu, which is now an OS X supported contextual menu item and, in some cases, like MoveCM, through Menu Bar items. In my opinion, neither of these options is as convenient as the old contextual menu versions, but developers are to be commended for finding a workaround solution to the problem Apple, in its infinite wisdom, created for them and for us.


Thanks, BJ, for picking that up. I pruned a longer paragraph (saying “...has no facility for... in Contextual menus”) just before I posted and obviously didn't notice that I had over-pruned to create an an untruth. Thanks!
The warning about this “MoveCM” remains unchanged!!

I'm sorry, what does MoveCM do that a simple service can't? Automator provides all of this and more. For free. Try it. It's quite simple.

I made a "one time" donation to Move CM about 2 years ago with Kagi, got a password and am now getting a message that it requires a password. Kagi doesn't answer emails sent to confirm I purchased the software. Bummer. Don't know what to do but pay again to get this very good piece of software.

This is exactly the kind of thing I needed. Works well. Also, you should check the web site for the marketing. Make a one-time donation, and you get a password good for all this utilities. That's definitely WAY COOL. Hope he gets way rich.

Finderpop still does this better than anything else, no menu, no "common" folder, sinply select, click, choose folder all in one fluid motion and click...your choice of move copy or alias appears on the screen. None compare to Finderpop's ease of use and simple elegance. And it's FREE.

Didn't really think there was anything to make this better. I was wrong. The Put in Place feature is a very useful addition.

Great work!
