The key is to select one or several objects in a layer, and watch the tiny highlighted squares at the extreme right of the selected items.

Then click and hold one of these tiny squares, and drag it (upwards, or downwards to the desired layer. Even it's easier to drag the tiny square at the right of the layer name that represents all the objects selected in that layer.

 

Have you tried with just one or two objects? For your convenience you can also select and group them (Object menu), and then click on any of the objects to select the group and drag the tiny square of the group to the other layer.

 

How to select several objects?: Drag the cursor in order to touch them all, or click on one, press and hold Shift key, click on other and other,... to select them. (Click again to unselect a selected one).

Thank you so much for your reply, I will post a video here and as you can see, I am trying to do, what you have told me.

If I am selecting the whole object in a group, it works, but If I want to select just a few of therm even 1 it does not work.

I have checked it works everyway I tred, with objects from a group also.

If it does not work in your system, please confirm your Illustrator version number (about Illustrator window) and OS numerical version too.

Did it work in earlier versions or before?

Or try to reset Preferences (hold Cmd/Ctrl+Alt+Shift when starting Illustrator).
