Dir 1 & Dir 2. 1 has 300 plus files in it. I want to move some specific files from 1 to 2. File names to be moved are like this.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 2016 xyxyxyxxxy.*
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 2016 XXYYYXXXYYYXX.*
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 2016 xyyyyyyXXYYY.*
How do I wright the copy command at CMD line to move files.
I did this 40 years ago but 81 now and have forgotten how.

In windows explorer open both Folders. If only the files that you want to copy have 2016 in their filename you can open Dir 1 and search for 2016 then when the files are listed click in the pane (to put cursor focus in there) then hold down Ctrl and press A on keyboard. This will select all of them. Then you can either Drag them all to Dir 2 as per FB and wee eddie said
OR hold down Ctrl and press C this will copy all of the selected files.
Go to the other Windows Explorer window and paste them into Dir 2 (Ctrl + V) Make sure they are there and ok. Then close the window.
Go back to the first Windows Explorer window Dir 1 search results where the 2016 filenames are still selected and delete them.
