Pretty basic, I'm sure, but I can't figure it out.

Click the item left most on the track you wish to move, then press and hold Shift as you drag to the right.

Note that this won't have any effect on other tracks. To do those (if they exist) they will need to be selected.

to add to what Rick has suggested ...

to move everything on all tracks, put the playhead where you want to start the insert, hold down shift key, and move playhead to the right; everything to the right of playhead ,on all tracks, will move

Two good ideas. This one seems the quickest and easiest. I also discovered I could block everything I wanted to move, then drag and drop it all to the right. Thanks!
