Drag and Drop URL
Posted on 2004-10-28
I am using Outlook Express.
Today I got an update and I seem to have lost some functionality that I use constantly:
I view my email in text mode and when I get an email that has a URL, that URL is colored blue and is underlined. As always I can click it and it opens an IE browser (or reuses one if it is already opened).
So here is the new change/problem:
Rather then clicking that URL, I often DRAG it and drop it onto an open browser window. It is a very convenient way to operate when I have multiple browsers open.
With this latest Windows Update, I have LOST that functionalite. When I drag a URL over a browser window, the mouse cursor does not change to indicate a drop target and "dropping" has no effect.
I'm guessing that this is a recent change to plug a security hole. What I want to know is if anybody else has noticed this and if there is a registry setting or something that I can change to get my computer back to the way I like it.
