How to sort a group of emails from Inbox into another folder?

How to sort a group of emails from Inbox into another folder?

I've figured out how to sort the Inbox to list the group of emails I want.  Now I need to move those into a different folder that has already been created.  So far I can only do this task one email at a time.  I need to move a few hundred emails.  Does anyone know an easier way?  Select all - then click and drag doesn't seem to work.   Thanks!

When you say you sorted the messages, do you mean you did a search for a certian criteria and now have a group of emails based on that?  First, are you still on the old email format, or the new one?  The old one looks like this----------------------

I sorted using the "Search" box for some specific emails.  And, apparently I am using the old format.   Thanks!

OK so when you are looking at the results of the search, at the top of the message list check the little box that selects all messages.  Then, click on "Move" in the toolbar, and select the folder you want to move them to.
