That seems like a no-brainer right?

Not so — posting a well thought out question with sufficient information to answer it in one go is not always as easy as it seems.

Users tend to say something like: “How do I move a file to my Pictures folder?” and fail to mention what app they want to do this in.

The normal assumption would be the Finder, and one or two or five people come up with helpful solutions — but then the questioner comes back and says it's Path Finder, or Capture One, or something else…

Valuable time gets wasted this way — your time and that of the people who try to help you.
