    I am using Windows 10, and I am trying to copy one folder to another folder using File Explorer. If I click on a file folder, I find that the "Copy to" and "Move to" icons are both greyed out. The only option that I find available is the moving or copying of individual files. I need to move folders with a lot of files and sub-directories in them. How do I do this?

    It would be easier using something other than Explorer with a side by side window. However if you opened two instances of Explorer, you would then have the same effect and could simply drag and drop from one to the other.

    If this issue happens only recently and if you remember a date when Copy To & Move To were working , then do a system restore and pick a date when your Copy To and Move To were working as your restore point.

    If you need to need how to do system restore, please post back.
