Move a file or folder within Catalog in ArcGIS Pro

Have a question in my mind.

In ArcGIS Pro and you have a Catalog open. 

When I was cleaning up all the junkie I saved to ....

My question here is :

You cannot move the folder from A to B ?

When I selected multiple folders or file,  the only thing I can see is Copy path .  I am not sure what this means BUT

it would be NICE for ESRI to add a ribbon tab   "Move to" inside  the Contextual tab "Manage"  just like what Windows Explorer has...

Just sayin'

Only way I know of is open Windows Explorer and copy them to Move to to another folder....

But just curious if there is a way around within ArcGIS Pro ?

Why not use the tool best suited which isn't Pro.

Having said that, be careful about moving anything associated with projects cause you can break a whole load of stuff unwittingly

Yes that is the reason why I wanted the Move to or Copy to within Pro rather to have that doing in the Windows Explorer

Another simple yet useful thing that you could do in Desktop but not in Pro.

Please consider adding this to help make Pro at least as functional as Desktop.

Just wanted to close the loop here to say that this was improved in ArcGIS Pro 3.0. See
