I have a Windows 7 computer that SHOULD behave like this video http://screencast.com/t/X9JR3i4NO when you drag a shortcut to it.  Unfortunately it doesn't.  Is there any way to get this behavior to happen as shown?

When you drag a shortcut to a folder that is open, it should drop the link into that folder.

Does this behavior only happens with dragging shortcuts to folders only?
Or does it happen when you drag shortcuts to the "Taskbar" or "Start Menu"?
