There are situations when you think you have made lots of folders for no reason. In that case, you would like to move the files to another folder to save yourself from complications. So here, I’ve drafted a guide about How To Merge Folders on Mac. And there’s no need to install any third-party utilities to complete this task.
How Do I Merge Folders on Mac?
There are two possible situations of merging folders on your Mac. One situation is that you would want to merge different named folders. And the other one is to merge folders that have the same name. So I’m going to provide help for both of these situations. You are allowed to pick one solution that meets your requirement.
Merge Folders With Different Names on Mac
- Launch the folder from which you want to move files.
- Press Command + A keys from your keyboard.
- Now click on Edit from the menu dock and select Copy. Or just press Command + C after selecting the files.
- Open the other folder in which you want to move files.
- Press Command + V after opening the folder which you want to keep.
- After the successful transfer of files, select the emptied folder press Delete from your keyboard.
- Confirm your action to move it to the trash.
Merge Folders With Same Names on Mac
- Click on the first folder that you would like to move into the other folder.
- Now drag the first folder and then drop it on the icon of the second folder while pressing the Option key.
- Keep pressing the Option key until a popup starts to appear on your Mac’s screen.
- Thereafter, select Merge from the appearing popup.
Note: To merge identically named folders, just ensure that both of them don’t contain the same files. Because they the same files, then you’ll not see the Merge button. But only, Replace and Stop buttons will appear in the box.
