SharePoint: drag and drop functionality

Problem
I am sitting here thinking about how tedious it's going to be to try to organize all of my company's docs in SharePoint. There's two ways I already knew about: 1) Save the doc to my computer, then re-upload to the new location in SharePoint 2) Use the "Send to location" button.

Fortunately there's a third AWESOME way.

Solution
In your document library:
1. Click the Library tab
2. Click Open with Explorer
 
This allows you to manage your SharePoint library with Windows Explorer. Yup! You can navigate through your library just like you would navigate your file system. You can create folders, move files around, etc...
