Cannot Drag And Drop In Applications

Sep 6, 2013

I don't seem to be able to drag and drop anymore in more than one application, so it should be Windows, not the applications.

I did restart the laptop, but it didn't work.

How To Drag And Drop A File Within A Folder

Jan 5, 2014

I have only been using windows 8 for a few weeks and I am still getting my head round it. I have copied some documents from my old laptop onto my new one and have notice that most of the files are now all mixed up. I am trying to drag and drop them into the order in which I want them set out, for example my bank statements, utility bills etc are no longer in date order. I have tried to do it from the drop down box which says descending, ascending, date etc, but they are still all mixed up. Is there a way to drag and drop a file so that I can slot it into the place I want it to be, like you can with photos in Picasa, there doesn't seem to be a drag and drop in windows 8 (or am I missing it somewhere along the line)?

Windows 8 Drag And Drop Files ERROR

Mar 16, 2014

I have Windows 8 [haven't upgraded to Windows 8.1 yet] and the past few days I am having ALL kinds of problems.

[1] My ability to drag and drop files and folders is no longer working.
[2] Things are opening on one click, even though I disabled that feature and set it for double clicking only
[3] I can't grab and move windows that are open, it won't allow me to do that.
[4] I also just noticed that a lot of programs that have a drop box, when I click on them, it doesn't drop the box, it just blinks down and then you can't select anything.

I'm not getting any error messages. I tried the two things listed as far as registry editing...but the one that shows the drag and drop isn't even in my registry editor I can't change it from 0 to 1 -- it's no longer there.

Also I tried to follow another suggestion [thinking it might be a virus] which stated to shut down windows restore first. When I did that it deleted all previous restorations so I can't even go ahead and try to restore.

Lastly, I do have an ongoing antivirus and spyware...both of which I run on a daily basis....

Huge Icon At Pointer During Drag And Drop (Explorer)

Nov 19, 2013

I have had this issue to some extent from Windows 7 onwards, but it has got worse with successive Windows versions, and it's now quite insane since I 'upgraded' from Windows 8 to 8.1 (x64).

The problem is that when I drag and drop from Desktop or Explorer or my regular file manager (FreeCommander), an absolutely huge icon appears at the tip of the mouse pointer, representing the file being dragged (or, in an application, representing the block of text being dragged). Not only is this extremely distracting, but it actually makes it difficult and indeed sometimes impossible to see the exact point where I mean to be dropping the item.

I so much want to turn off that behaviour. Sure, I want a small, discreet little rectangle or tiny icon to show at the mouse pointer, so that I know that I am indeed dragging something, as I used to get a long time ago, but not this great big obstructive thing that appears for each drag and drop nowadays. It may look clever or 'cool', but it is dysfunctional and obstructive.

Audio :: Can't Drag / Drop Mp3 Files In Audition 1.5 And Mediamonkey

Mar 24, 2014

I just built a new Windows 8.1 64 bit with Asrock Haswell Extreme 11 ac motherboard. Using old copy of Audition 1.5 and Newest copy of Mediamonkey 4.1. I can't drag and drop mp3's into the programs. The only way I can get them in is through File/Open. I know that the Audition is very old, but I didn't have a problem with it on XP. I thought it was only the Audition problem but now that I have the newest version of Mediamonkey on it the problem also affects this one too. Is there anything I can do. I'm sure I have administrator set as privileges.

Maintenance :: Applications From Metro IU Load And Run Faster Than Applications Launched From IE

Apr 16, 2013

I have noticed that applications that are launched from the Metro IU load and run much faster than the same applications launched from IE under desktop. I have even created Metro tiles for applications I normally run as they load and run much faster than launching them from the desktop. This site (Windows Eight Forms) would not load from desktop IE but loads immediately from a Metro tile I created.

Can't Drag Files From Explorer Into 64-bit Programs

Apr 17, 2013

I've been having this issue and trying to wrap my head around it for a couple weeks, and I've had this new laptop less than a month. Just as I was posting this, I realized that it seems to be specifically 64-bit programs.

Specifically, the problem is that when I try to drag a file from Explorer into a program that I know is able to load it from drag-and-drop, all I get is the "no" pointer, the circle with the line. All the programs I've tested would let you drag files onto them just fine on my older Windows 7 laptop.

Some of the specific programs this is happening in:
Microsoft Office 2010 (seemingly the whole suite is acting like this, I tested Word and Powerpoint)
Paint.NET 3.5.10
Sony Vegas 12.0
Waterfox 18.0.1

I can File>Open files in these programs just fine, but dragging to them from Explorer would be miles more convenient. I've tested the files I've tried dragging. They drag fine into Notepad, they drag fine into Foobar2000, IrfanView, Notepad++, all operating as 32-bit.

Now I WAS having the same problem with Audacity and Skype, which is why I didn't catch the pattern of them all being x64 programs at first (since I have 32-bit versions of both), but that was happening because they were being run as Administrator, which is an issue I'd also like to try and resolve. I don't understand why running as Admin should prevent me from dragging files into open windows of them.

Drag Files / Folders From One Directory To Another

Feb 18, 2014

I am trying to organize the files on my system, and am consistently butting heads against this problem. It always seems to be the last file I highlight. In other words.. I have two directories open on the screen, and am simply looking to drag files/folders from one directory to another. To do this, you almost always have to highlight the folder you want to move, and doing this seems to put a lock on that folder. If I highlight more folders, it seems to be ok, except for the last one I highlight will always fail to copy.

Any way to prevent windows from locking files in this way?

Maintenance :: CPU Doesn't Drop Below 30% In Idle?

Oct 19, 2013

I upgraded my OS to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 from the store yesterday. Everything seems to be working fine - no lags or freezes, but I noticed that my PC doesn't drop below 30-35% in idle, also it doesn't downclock (balanced power settings) - it used to drop to 0.8ghz in idle and be like 1-4% in idle before the update, and now it's permanent 3.2ghz and over 30% in idle. I noticed that Service Host: Local Services and Service Host: System Services in the task manager are draining over 10% CPU each, something that didn't happen before.

Occasional WiFi Drop On Windows 8

Apr 7, 2013

I upgraded my computer from windows 7 to windows 8 on day 1, relatively no problems since then.

About last week I started having trouble with wifi, not sure if its HP bios updates or Windows 8 general updates that may have caused the problem. It's not that it disconnects often, its more like once every few days. Still an annoying problem when I'm working on something and I have to go into my wifi connection and disconnect then reconnect.

Its not the router connection, I've checked it at the same time on my phone and ipad and it's working fine.

Gaming :: Noticeable Drop In Performance After Updating

Dec 16, 2013

I recently updated my laptop from Windows 8 to 8.1. Before updating, I was able to play all of my games just fine, particularly Skyrim, on high or even max settings. After updating though, the first time I loaded a save game it took nearly between 5-10 minutes to load (compared to normal 1 at most). After that they are better, but still much slower than they used to be, and I can also barely even run Skyrim at the lowest possible graphics settings. I know that my computer has the capability to handle higher settings. Did the update change some setting in performance that I am not aware of?

Maintenance :: Windows 8 Transfer Speed Drop USB 3?

Jun 3, 2014

I am curious about windows 8 transfer speeds. I'm currently running a Dell XPS 1647 (mid 2010 model) with a USB 3 card from Startech installed in the expressport. It works great, but windows pretty consistently does this thing where if I'm transferring files, it will start fast and then slow down by at least 50%. I have attached a photo of this situation. In this case, I was transferring roughly 500gb of files from a LaCie drive (7200RPM) using eSata to a Western Digital drive 2.5in external drive using USB3. to about 70% of the transfer I was getting 80mb/s transfer speeds, then it drops to roughly 26mb/s for the remainder. This hasn't just happened on my laptop, on my new desktop running Windows 8 Pro, the same thing can occur.

Is there a reason for this? Is it a windows thing, or a hardware thing? I find it does it on USB keys as well - starts quick, then quickly drops to about 20% of the speed.

Cannot Move Or Resize Windows - Drag Mouse - Slow Response

Aug 15, 2013

Besides not having any drag and drop features for icons or files, I also cannot move the entire window by clicking and holding the mouse button on the title. I cannot re-size a window either. The close, minimize, and restore down/maximize buttons work. Sometimes when I double click on the title bar the window will restore down/maximize, but not always.

The slider bars only work if they are clicked in (and then only sometimes) and take a second to respond or will not respond at all; I cannot drag them. I cannot highlight any text to copy it; I assume because that is also a drag function.

Frequently, windows will not respond for up to a minute or longer and sometimes I stop them because they have not responded for more than 5 minutes. Mouse clicks frequently take 3 or 4 seconds to respond in all programs. I am not a knowledgeable computer person and do not know if this is caused by Windows 8 or the hardware.

I have tried to restore the system (three times), but there was only one restore point and that failed. I have tried using escape, various other keys, the right mouse button, and restarting. I gave up on restarting after well over 3 hours because there is a queue of 21 updates that have failed before and it was only on update 10. Shutting down and restarting does not work.

I have McAfee and have scanned the computer 3 times and not found anything wrong.

Network / Sharing :: Wireless Drop Off Indicating Limited Connectivity

Jan 30, 2014

After receiving a new laptop several months ago I began experiencing wi-fi disconnection issues at times the indicator on the system tray indicates limited connectivity, that's when I know that I am about to lose the connection I use windows 8.1 so when clicking on the wi-fi signal strength indicator in the system tray the network status dialogue slide's in from the right of the screen where I pre-empt the drop off by switching the wi-fi off & on again.

Computer is acer aspire e series with a Broadcom 802.11n Wireless adapter.

I really want to start back gaming on my pc but the random wifi drops really ruin my experience.

Also I may have a DNS server problem? My wifi is working fine on my gaming consoles, phones, and my mom's laptop.

How To Determine Where Applications Will Be Saved

Sep 15, 2014

I built a new computer, and now have both a SSD and HDD setup. My intention was to have the SSD be only for Windows and use the HDD for everything else. I feel like that everything I download is going to the SDD and I am not getting any prompts for where to install applications.

For example, I just installed Office and was planning to install it on the HDD. I checked the SSD, and sure enough, there is a folder for Office. On a related note, the install setup everything for Office including OneDrive for Business. I don't need OneDrive for Business. Should there have been a prompt to select what Office applications I wanted to install?

Unusable Applications In Windows 8?

Jun 11, 2013

I upgraded to Windows 8 about a month ago, and quite frankly I have never had so many problems on my previous operating systems (95, 98, 98SE, 2000NT, XP Home, XP Professional) as I have on this.

I have had to completely reinstall Windows 8 three times now due to things going wrong, such as;

1. 'Change PC Settings' became inoperative after a few days, nothing happens when I click on it.
2. The 'Desktop' Tile all of a sudden disappeared from the main start-up apps.
3. Some of my Desktop Shortcut Icons have turned blank just showing just a 'White Paper' Icon.
4. Some programs when I launch, say the I don't have Administration Rights to access the program, when I do have admin rights.

I notice looking through the posts in the forum that these problems come up very often, I have tried to fix them following other users advice but no joy.

I have the latest drivers, this includes my Graphics Display driver which is the latest version.

So whats going on with Windows 8, its the worst version of windows I've came across, when are the techies going to do something about these common problems, as I'm defiant to reinstall it all again which takes me all day due to the amount of software I have to reinstall.
