Just right click on the user name, choose move, then select the OU where you want to move the user to

In Active Directory Users and Computers, RIGHT CLICK the USER that you would like to move to an OU.  A drop down box will appear.  Choose the MOVE option.....and pick the OU in which you want to move the user to.

You can also just drag and drop the user object to the OU you want

Think of the OU as a filing cabinet. The actual user object or computer object in active directory needs to be "filed" in the OU that you want it to be in.

So when you open the OU up...you'll see a list of users or comptuers.
