When using the "Move To" feature in SharePoint, it would be much more useful if the default path is the folder the selected files currently reside in.  Today when using the feature the "current library" is the default.  I then have to navigate from the parent library all the way to the current folder just to select a new folder within the current folder to move my files to.  Why cant the default folder just be the current folder?

Hi @eaton3519851 - One tip that might help: if you can see the folder that you want to move the file to in the list of files/folders of a library (or in the navigation bread crumb), you can just drag and drop it to that folder to move it.
