How to move objects from one psf to another

If I have say an OpenFileDialog, SaveFileDialog and FolderBrowserModernDialog in a psf and have named and configured their properties, how do I copy them to another psf without loosing anything?

Copy and paste will not include the wired events. Therefore, I recommend creating a Control Set instead. Then you can drag and drop your control set into other forms.

To create a new control set, follow these steps:

1. Select all the controls you wish to include.

2. Press [Ctrl + T] or use the Ribbon->Designer->Templates->Create Control Set or the designer context menu.

3. Select an icon and enter a description.

You can check any extra functions you wish to include.
Note: PowerShell Studio will automatically include any wired events.

4. Once you save the control set, you can access it from the Toolbox pane under the Control Sets tab:
