To move a List, you will need to select the Folder that will house the List.

Alternatively, if you don't want your List to be housed in a Folder in the Space you're moving it to, you can simply drag and drop it directly into that Space!

Removing Folders and Lists

It's important to note that there are two different ways you can remove Folders and Lists from your ClickUp Workspace. 

Archiving: This removes the Folder or List from view, but does not delete any tasks that are associated with that Folder or List. 

Unless you want to permanently delete tasks within the Folder or List, you should always use the Archive option. If you do want to delete tasks, just click the trash bin icon.
