Provide toast notifications when moving files and folders

Use case or problem

Currently Obsidian provides no toast notification confirming success of file or folder moves.

Proposed solution

Add toast notifications when moving files and folders so users can be assured the move took place as requested.

Possible notifications:

  • Good: [File|Folder] moved
  • Better: [File|Folder] moved to: [path from vault root]

Current workaround (optional)

Manually go find the folder the file (or folder) was moved to and verify it is there.

If we accidentally select the wrong target folder while in a hurry we have to use search to find the file/folder and move it to the correct location.

Related feature requests (optional)

I just opened this other feature request to create a command palette command to move a note’s enclosing folder to a target folder, which also discusses creating the toast notifications for moves.
