    IN THE SCREEN CAPTURE WHEN I DRAG A FILE THIS ICON GOES WITH THE DRAGGING FILE AND MAKE IT HARD TO SEE WHERE YOU ARE DROPPING IT. CAN IT BE CHANGED TO HIDDEN OR SOMETHING>?

  2. Drag and drop files, I am not able to drag files from the files window to folders in the navigation pane.

    Hi Ted,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing currently.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • Are you able to do the same using other computers?
    • What exactly happens when you drag and drop to other file explorer windows?
    • Do you get any error message?
    I would like to inform you that there might be a chance that there is some system file corruption. So, I would suggest you to run
    SFC scan and see if it brings any difference.

    System file check is a utility built into the Operating System that will check for system file corruption. The sfc /scannow command (System File Check) scans the integrity of all protected operating system files and replaces incorrect,
    corrupted, changed, or damaged versions with the correct versions where possible.

    Follow the steps below and check:

    a. Right click on the Start Menu, locate and select Command Prompt (Admin).

    Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

    b. Type the following command, and then press
    ENTER
    :

    sfc /scannow

    For more information refer to this article:

    How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows 8,8.1 (this will work on Windows 10 also)

  3. Drag and drop files, I am not able to drag files from the files window to folders in the navigation pane.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.

    Let's try the below methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1: Run the DISM tool

    • Press Windows + X and select the Command prompt (admin)
    • In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, enter the following commands. Press the Enter key after each command:
    • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    • To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type
      Exit, and then press Enter.
    • Restart the machine and check if it solves.

    Method 2: Perform a
    clean boot

    To disable all non-Microsoft services consult the article called Clean Boot.

    Follow: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Note: After troubleshooting, refer to this section "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting"

    Disclaimer: A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when
    you run a program in Windows. You may also troubleshoot or determine what conflict is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    Keep us informed if the issue is resolved. We are glad to help you further.

    Drag and drop files

    You can try hiding the task-bar to see if that helps. Otherwise you can't hide the ICON.

    I'd like to suggest the Copy To and Move To Context Menu.
    You click at the location you want the item to be, and Copy To or Move To options will do the rest. Easy and accurate.

    Please use this tutorial
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ve-folder.html

    The tutorial is applicable to Windows 10. I use it in my 2 Win 10 laptops.

    If you need to know how to use it, please post back. It's very simple.

    From your screenshot, you already have all the checkboxes ticked.
    If you want to transfer them to another location, right click at one of the file > click Copy To ( or Move To ) > navigate to the location you want > click at the location folder > click Copy ( or Move ).
    That's it. All the files will be copied or moved to a new location.

    I have no idea how you get that "icon" you mentioned. Can't help you there.

    Note :
    Copy To means you make another copy to a new location.
    Move To means the item is relocated to a new location.
