Question file that reproduces and moves

Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows how to make a file that will
move itself and copy itself automatically, without anyone having to open it.
NOTE: THIS WILL NOT BE USED TO HARM ANY COMPUTER.

No. You can create an executable file that copies itself when run, or you can create a program that runs on startup and copies said file. But a file can't copy itself without even running.

What's the application?

By application I meant why do you want to do it? If you tell us what you're trying to achieve we can suggest alternatives...
