*.* is an Anatomy of Your Files

file-lookup

I am working on a project that requires data that comes to me in an unusual format from the Bloomberg terminal. Each year’s set of data comes in its own subfolder. I want to move all this data out into one folder. How can I do this and avoid copy-pasting out of every subfolder.

Using the File Explorer, search for *.*. This is a “wild-card” entry that will bring up every file in the subfolders. 

You can then with one copy-paste insert the files into a new folder. (Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + N to make new folder.)
