Can't drag and drop

Question: Can't drag and drop

I have 2 problems I hope someone is able to fix for me. I am using Windows Xp Home and I am unable to drag and drop any files or desktop icons. I don't get an error message, it shows the file dragging but when I go to drop it nothing happens. Also when I restart my computer, the password box does not show up when I click on my username. I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL twice to enter it in. Both problems started happening at the same time so I am assuming they are related. If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

For some unknown reason, every day or so, I find that I can't drag and drop files to other folders or emails or anything for that matter. A simple restart fixes the problem but it's getting kind of annoying to have to restart just to drag and drop.
Has anybody heard of this problem in windows 8 or know how to fix it. I did google it but trying to find a single issue problem and using the words windows 8 comes up with 8 million things other than what your looking for.
I am running the windows 8 release preview build 8400 I believe it is.

Before Windows 7/Vista, in Explorer Detail view, only the filenames highlighted, now the entire rows get highlighted.

This means each time I try to do a "drag & select" to select multiple files, I just end up dragging the first file instead. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, it seems to be at random.

What's the way to tell Windows 7 I want to do a drag & select and not a drag & drop?

Thanks

I have a question regarding windows XP services that I was hoping someone could help me with.

I run Serato Scratch Live DJ software on my laptop and in order to get the best performance I created a hardware profile in which I disabled a ton of Windows services. It works nicely, there's only 14 background processes running and Serato runs great. The only problem is Click and Drag functionality has been disabled. I cant drag and drop songs in the Serato software, or drag around icons on the windows desktop. I was wondering if anyone knew which Windows service provided click and drag functionality so I can re-enable it.
 

Answer:Drag and Drop / Click and Drag service

None of them, Explorer.exe does that.

It sounds more like you've managed to disable something required by an explorer extension (i.e. zip program, virus scanner, etc). Most extensions I've encountered don't fail gracefully, so the explorer thread that gets information about what actions you can do with a file you just selected (like double clicking to open a zip as a folder, right click menus) just hangs waiting for a proper response from them.

Have you at least tried a clean reboot (or kill explorer.exe with taskmanager and let a new one automatically start), you might have turned off something and it didn't cleanly remove whatever hooks it had put in explorer.

I am running window XP Pro and suddenly I am having some major issues. Not sure if it's a virus, spyware or something else. I've run AVG free virus scan and AVG free spyware and got nothing out of it...I've also formatted my hard drive and re-installed windows and STILL have the problems. Here's what's happening...if ANYONE can get this fixed for me, you're a real pro.

First off, I can't drag and drop anything. I can right click and copy (or cut) then paste elsewhere, but I can't move desktop icons around, or drag them to the recycle bin, or any sort of drag and drop. Also, very frequently, all the sudden, I won't be able to click anything. No shortcuts, no quick launch icons, NOTHING! My computer acts kinda like it's hung, but the mouse works fine, just when I mouse over a button or icon, I get nothing, same thing when I click the button or icon...nothing....however, I have oddly noticed that if I press CRTL+ALT+DEL, then simply close down the task manager right away, without doing anything, my PC will let me click icons and buttons again, but still no drag and drop.....after a few minutes it'll mess up on me again, then CTRL+ALT+DEL and close task manager again to get back in business...

Anyways, PLEEEAASE HELP! I can't get my PC to a working order even by formatting the HD so I need a real pro!

Thanks in advance

When I hold down left mouse it copies the URL to my desktop.

How do I make it copy the image and not the URL?

Answer:Drag and Drop

What browser and OS are you using? I just tried it in both FireFox and IE on Win 7, left-clicked on the image and dragged the image to my desktop. Worked fine for both.

If you want the image to actually display as your background image, that's a different question. In that case, in either FireFox or IE, right-click on the image and select "Set as background".

This just started happening last Saturday evening. (10/23/04)

After boot up, the following occurs on my XP Professional System:

A). When I hit the "Start" button the menu will not stay on but flashes on and off. If I use the "Windows" key it displays properly.

B). I can receive e-mail but can't open it (Outlook Express). It acts as if there is no internet connection but the lights on the router say otherwise.

C). Drag and Drop doesn't work for e-mail or files, folders, etc.

D). If I go to "Control Panel" and go through the process as if I want to set up a new connection, I will get to the point where the Wizard recognizes there is already a connection. After canceling my option to continue the set-up, my ability to open email and get online is restored and the "Start" button will work properly.

E). Drag and Drop still will not function.

F). I went back to a "Restore Point" before these symtoms started and it did not change anything.

G). The Bold, Italiac, Underline, etc. functions do not work on this note. Don't know if it is related to my problem or not but it might help to know about it.

Gratefully,

Answer:Won't drag and drop

For openers, let's run spybot and adaware [gotten from links below]. After that I also suggest running Hijack This[link below] then follow the below instructions fully, and post the log in this thread, whereupon it'll be analysed by those-in-the-know here and then appropriate fixes will be suggested..

follow the next instructions on posting the Hijack This log here;

It’s very important that you save the log to its own permanent folder on your hard drive, such as Program Files/Hijack This, or My Documents/Hijack This, (NOT a temporary files folder) or you may loose the ability to undo any changes you make, so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows/and any open web browers and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET;- Await further analysis here.

Question: Drag and Drop?

Has anyone ever heard of not being able to drag & drop files? I can highlight a file and drag it (to another folder) but nothing happens when I drop it -- have to right-click-cut, go to new place and right-click-paste.

I can drag & drop text within an application with no problem, so It doesn't appear to be hardware; I installed the latest mouse driver from MS.

Can't find anything in settings - thought someone might have run up against this before.
This is a Dell machine running MS Windows 2000 Pro.
Any info is appreciated.
 

Answer:Drag and Drop?

Did you try left clicking on the file, dragging it to where you want it and after letting up on the mouse, and choosing move here?
It is a work around, but MS says that is the PROPER way to do it.

Sometimes it freezes when I drag a doc TO a folder

I'm hoping this makes sense. I'm not computer literate so you'll have to speak in ez terms. Thanks ahead of time!

Answer:Drag & drop

Hello PCsurfer

First of all check if "drag and drop" is enabled.
Both the options below should be checked.

Right-click the Start button, choose Properties, and click Customize. If you?re using the default Start menu, click the Advanced tab and then, in the Start Menu Items box, select Enable Dragging And Dropping. (If you?re using the classic Start menu, in the Advanced Start Menu Options box in the Customize Classic Start Menu dialog box, select Enable Dragging And Dropping.)

There is another setting for "Drag and Drop" in your IE options. Open IE > Tools > Internet Options > (tab) Security > (button) Custom Level and scroll down to "Drag and Drop or Copy and Paste Files" (under Miscellaneous).

If that does not help, try this fix. Be sure to select the fix for XP

.
Scroll down to "Drag & Drop Fix. Win 2000, Win XP"

I'm guessing you're trying to drag file from a folder onto another listed in the folder tree. That particular operation is problematic at best! This is because the folder tree in Windows Vista Explorer is depreciated, and no is longer really suited for primary navigation as it was in XP and older versions of Windows.

If you open two different folder windows and try to drag and drop betwen them, does this solve your problem?

Question: Drag and drop

I'm not sure if this is hardware or software.
I am trying to select/drag/drop photos from a file on my "D" drive to another file on my "D" drive so that I can resize, crop etc.
When I click to select the photos (while holding down the control key) sometimes they open in Windows Photo Viewer, sometimes I can select several in a row and then suddenly one of them will open in Windows Photo Viewer.
Even if I try only one or two photos and manage to select them without them opening, they don't move. My screen just drops back to the listing again.
I have run SFC/ SCANNOW and it reports no problems. I have uninstalled my mouse and reinstalled it. I have restarted the computer several times. I have run Malware Bytes and Norton Security Suite and both report no problems.
This is a new problem that only surfaced a few days ago.
I am running Win 10 with the latest-greatest-up-to-datest updates including the Anniversary Update.

Sometimes when I click on an icon to drag it around it responds as though I doubled clicked it and it opens.
It may take about 6 or 7 tries to pick up the icon instead of opening it.

I don't know if this is a Windows Vista problem or a Pavilion problem but drag and dropping is a REAL nightmare.

hi...


recently I have been having trouble dragging and dropping.

I cant drag or drop anywhere.....Windows explorer, desktop, itunes, etc.


I think i might have been caused because of a recent graphics card driver update, but im not sure.

I have tried using a corded mouse ( I am currently using a wireless usb), disabling my display adaptors, and I even checked if my drag and drop was enabled through the start button properties.


One wierd thing about my computer is that it wont boot unless a corded keyboard and mouse is hooked up....I do use a wireless usb set up though.

When i turn my computer on , through a restart or shutdown, my start button wont stay up after i click nor can i type anything.


I know this is a complicated complaint, but i appreciate any help.

I did a fresh install of xp on this computer and a few months later I can't drag and drop anymore. I can't copy a file or make shortcuts either. I can right click and make a new folder however. I have comodo antivirus and firewall. I ran housecall and malawarebytes today. housecall got rid of one file which I didn't make a note of....I thought there would be a summary screen when it was done.

My PC has a 1TB SATA II hard drive that is showing signs of going out. It has two partitions, one is ?C? (Operating system) and ?E? (Data). Is it possible that I could install a similar new hard drive and transfer the data directly from the old to the new? I am probably just under intermediate knowledge and experience. ( I know just enough to get into trouble).
I have O&O DiskImage 6 and have good backups, however it appears that it would be easier to just ?Drag and Drop?. I am aware that there would probably be some file path problems. Has anyone done this?
 

Answer:Drag and drop to new HDD

Greetings, Bystander...

Should be no problem as long as you're copying data and not installed programs...

One procedure would be to install the new HD, partition it so there is a 'C' partition for Windows and at least one 'data' partition, and install Windows. Then mount the old drive as a slave and copy the data from 'D' to 'D'...

Question: VB6 Drag Drop

I am making a checkers game with VB6. I have drawn the board with labels and the peices are image controls. Both are control arrays. How do I know which peice was moved? Here is my code to move a peice:

Private Sub lblSquare_OLEDragDrop(Index As Integer, Data As DataObject, Effect As Long, Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
If lblSquare(Index).BackColor = &HFFFFFF Then 'make sure its not a white square
Exit Sub
End If
ImgRed(0).Left = lblSquare(Index).Left
ImgRed(0).Top = lblSquare(Index).Top
End Sub

lblSquare is the name of the control array for each of the squares on the checker board. Index contains the square the peice was moved to, but there are multiple peices. Any ideas on what I'm missing? Thanks for the help.

I used to be able to drag and drop directly to a CD before my old PC went up in smoke. Now, it places the file some where temporarily, and I now must click another MSG that says to install on the CD. It takes a couple of minutes to install each file.
QUESTION? What program or file must I have installed in order to utilize the DLA of drag/drop?
Thanks
 

Answer:Using Drag and Drop.

You must had some UDF packet writing software installed previously. What ever it was it has to be reinstalled to do as you want.

Here are some packet writing software:

1. IBM DLA, developed by IBM (free)
2. Drag-to-Disc (DirectCD), developed Roxio
3. InCD, developed by Ahead

Maybe this will work.

Answer:DRAG 'N DROP ???

You can not drag them directly to the taskbar but you can drag them into the quick launch toolbar usually to the left side of the taskbar.Or Create a folder to put your items from your fav's in. Right click on taskbar/tools/new toolbar go to the folder click OK the folder will be to the bottom right of taskbar.

Windows XP Pro SP3; ASRock 775VM800; Pentium 4; 3GHz; 2Gb RAMRecently drag and drop has become very haphazard. Sometimes the selected item is not picked up at all and may take three or four attempts to collect the item. Other times, having picked up an item it will drop it apparently at random. This may mean that the item is moved into another folder, which can take ages to find. Other times the item is dropped onto an application icon, and I have to wait for the application to sort itself out.I have looked at the mouse dialog box in the control panel, and also the one in accessability options, and both are normal. How can I get drag and drop to work properly?

Hi,

The symptoms I have encountered thus far are:
I can't click on task bar right after windows is booted up. In order to access it i have open the my computer icon on the desktop (which I can click on). I am unable to click within the window until I hit alt-tab. Following that i can also use the taskbar.
I can click on icons but can't drop them where I want to, need to copy/cut and paste. Same goes for the quick launch icons, I can use them but not rearrange their order.
While in Firefox I can access only the webpage window or the Firefox task/address bar at a time and to switch from on to another I need to click on the taskbar or desktop and then back to Firefox. What I click on first in the window following that procedure is all I can use unless I repeat the steps to switch it.

Sup guys,
Alright, i've had countless problems and this is probably one of the worst viruses i've been hit with.
It started out when i visited a site that gave me a virus right off-the-bat without even downloading anything. A couple ads kept popping up randomly. I later scanned with S&D and when i clicked fix, a wholeeee bunch of error pop ups came up about missing .dlls and other malfunctions occurring in S&D. I had to force shut down my computer because i couldn't do anything while it was occurring and it wouldn't end.
So i restarted and it turned out i was hit with the Log-in Log-out loop virus, which i fixed by remotely connecting to the registry of the infected computer from another computer and fixing the registry, so i could successfuly log in. After that, everything on the computer is basically messed up. My video card drivers, my sound card drivers, my keyboard port doesn't work (so i have to hook a USB keyboard), i can't enable certain services, my right click takes about 2 minutes to pop up, the list goes on.

I'm using an old version of Adobe Audition (version 1.5) with Windows 8 and it works fine except for one thing - I can't drag and drop audio files into the program.

If I change the value of the EnableLUA registry key to 0, which completely disables User Account Control, drag and drop works in Audition but then of course Metro apps will not work.

Running Audition with administrator privileges doesn't allow drag and drop.

Is there any way to fix this? Any way to make Audition exempt from UAC in some way, as it seems to be that that's preventing drag and drop from working?

Thanks!

Answer:How to fix this drag and drop/UAC issue?

You can try compatibility mode. I said "try" because it might or might not work.

You'll need to specify, in what i found out, Windows XP SP3 compatibility and see if that alone (no run as admin) will do better.

My problem appeared about three weeks ago. I've tried lots of things to fix it to no avail. At one time it appeared to be tied to MSIE so I removed it completely. I like Firefox better anyway. Problem is Microsoft doesn't so I've not been able to get much help from their Knowledgebase.

This is very similar to the one posted by CrazyRussian with maybe a couple extra symptoms.

Immediately after a re-boot everything works fine and continues to do so for from a several hours to several days. Then, suddenly... drag & drop and cut/paste quit working. Clicking links starts acting funny.

One more thing that seems related but I don't know how, if indeed it is. The Rpcss.exe task goes away. Cause? Effect? When the Rpcss.exe task is running all is fine. Does that make any sense?

And another strange thing. About the time this started happening I began to get the following Event Log entry, "The device, \Device\ScsiPort1, did not respond within the timeout period. " Trouble is, this box has no Scsi devices, never has. It can't be co-incidence but I'm clueless. Again, is this cause or effect? I didn't notice it for several weeks.

Many months ago a thread was posted on these forums regarding an inability to right click on the start menu, and in effect not allowing the user to sort his start menu effectively. 3 weeks ago I installed servicepack 2, and this problem decided to invade my once perfect workspace. After investigation and coming up with an appropriate solution, I set out to remedy my issue.

The saviour it seemed, was to be located in the "taskbar and start menu" properties, under customize (for the xp menu, not classic), in the advanced tab. After asking around, I determined that something was missing. In the start menu box, I was told there was an option to "enable drag and drop". Alas, as you can clearly see in the attached picture, it is not :(. Nor is it a stand alone option.

Right click on the blank area of your desktop background, right on the screen.....Look for the line that says "Arrange Icons...." and then,
uncheck Auto Arrange. You should then be able to drag icons where you want and they should stick.

Also seems like in the past before we could Drag and drop,somewhere--I dont know where- we had to click on DLA.

I want to view folders and choose to play a whole folder or just songs in a folder. My search was much quicker and it viewed the file name NOT the tag name. My zune looks at the mp3 tag name of the file.


my ??? is, what brand of MP3 player has a huge HDD and allows drag and drop ability


~Carmine

Answer:drag and drop MP3 players ?????

hm..... have you looked into cowan? i think they do that
