In computing, move is a command in various DOS,[1] OS/2 and Microsoft Windows command line interpreters (shells) such as COMMAND.COM, cmd.exe,[2] 4DOS/4NT and Windows PowerShell. It is used to move one or more files or directories from one place to another. The original file is deleted, and the new file may have the same or a different name. It is analogous to the Unix mv command.

In Windows PowerShell, move is a predefined command alias for the Move-Item Cmdlet which basically serves the same purpose.
