  1. Properties can no longer be moved with the file.


    Recently after my update to 21H1, I keep getting this "1 interrupted Action" information pop-up when I try to move a file from my desktop to another location on the hard drive or external USB. The same "1 interrupted action" pop-up occurs even when trying to use the copy and paste method. The only solution I found that works to move or copy a file with its properties is the "xcopy" command in the CMD environment. What are the consequences of moving the file without its properties? I mean if it wasn't important; then why the necessity for the pop-up warning all the sudden? Here is a screen clip of the warning pop-up for both the "Move" and "Copy" features: This is happening with all types of files and not just .bat files and it is quite irritating trying to move files between drives or other locations on the hard disk using the xcopy feature because it seems to be the only way to move a file and retain its properties. Is there a work-around for this scenario? I mean of course I want to retain the properties of each file, but why is it that all the sudden a file cannot be moved within the hard drive without losing its properties if you move it? This just doesn't make any sense why it is acting like the files are backup files when they are not.

    File Explorer no longer lists out previously used tags in properties

    So my problem is that when typing into the tags field on File Explorer, it no longer opens a list of all tags that I could be typing. For example, if I wanted to add the tag "Male" to a picture I have, when typing the "M" it would already list out all tags I've used that start with "M," narrowing down the list as I type more. Or of course would just automatically complete the tag when I clicked on one of the options.

    This problem persists for any properties that I try to change, whether the file be JPG, MP3, the properties that used to pop up are no longer appearing, thus I have to fully type out every tag. I am still capable of searching via any of the properties however and I can also sort by tags in File Explorer. The only issue is that Explorer no longer "remembers" tags I've used before to help me fill them in.

    My current File Explorer Options are

    I've messed around with the inline AutoComplete as well to see if that would do the trick but to no avail.
    My Advanced Internet Options are

    Any troubleshooting or methods I can try that may work, I'd be happy to hear about them.
    Any information that I can provide to help you better understand my settings, please ask and I'll add it.

    File Explorer no longer lists out previously used tags in properties

    Hi just to clarify - if you now add tags, is newly entered data recorded and subsequently available, or does that not work either now? I.e. have you both lost old data and the inability to record new data to be offered when you fill fields?

    And are you seeing these? (Similar for photo tags).

    A quick test for photo tags shows previously entered similar tags are not offered.
    The options offered are - well- unfamiliar..
