When you watch videos from the Internet using Realplayer, your PC saves the video file to your "Temporary Internet Files" folder. These video files will continue to appear in your Realplayer library until you clear out the folder; if you want to keep viewing those videos, you should move them to a different folder. You may also have some video files in your Realplayer library in a permanent folder, but want to move them into a different folder.

  1. 1

    Locate the digital video files you want to move. Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your computer desktop and then search for files with an extension of ".rm". The file you want to move may be in a folder called "Temporary Internet Files".

  2. 2

    Verify that you have found the video you want to move. Your search results will probably include more than one video file. The file you want to move may have an obvious name, but it may not. To find the correct file, double-click on a file name; Realplayer will open the file and begin playing it.

  3. 3

    Create a folder to which to move the digital video file. Right-click on your desktop and select "New" then "Folder". Windows will create a new folder, called "New Folder". Rename this folder something meaningful, such as "Videos", by highlighting it, right-clicking on the folder and selecting "Rename". Double-click on the folder icon to open it.

  4. 4

    Right-click on the video file's name and select "Cut". Click inside the window that displays the contents of your new folder, right-click and select "Paste".
