Once you have a file, you can move it around using the
mv command. You specify the file current path, and its new path:
touch test mv pear new_pear
pear file is now moved to
new_pear. This is how you rename files and folders.
If the last parameter is a folder, the file located at the first parameter path is going to be moved into that folder. In this case, you can specify a list of files and they will all be moved in the folder path identified by the last parameter:
touch pear touch apple mkdir fruits mv pear apple fruits #pear and apple moved to the fruits folder
This command works on Linux, macOS, WSL, and anywhere you have a UNIX environment
