Moving a project’s files has never been easier: you just have to drag and drop files from Windows Explorer, whilst keeping the external references. From Windows Explorer, you can move files from the assembly folder to another folder (with or without renaming), such as items you decide to make standard  library items). When opening your assembly, it will point to the new references.
