I can't drag or copy/cut/paste files between folders, only to recycle bin!
Posted on 2000-03-31
I've only had Windows for a couple of months, and I'm booted into Linux about 95% of the time, so I'm not that good with Windows. For some reason, it will NOT let me drag files from one folder to another, nor will it let me copy or cut and paste them from one place to another. It will let me drag them to the recycle bin, but not onto the desktop. The only way I can move a file is to open it and resave it to another folder (though I can't even do that with things like mp3s that don't generally open to an application with a "save as" feature).
To top it all off, the Help program doesn't work. I can go into various topics, but nothing will display on the right side of the window (where the actual help is supposed to be displayed). All that appears is the topic list, search, etc on the left side of the window.
Could any or all of this be caused by the fact that I got rid of Internet Explorer? How do I fix it?? I don't care so much about the help, but I need to be able to move files around!
