Apps :: Drag N Drop File On Top Of Quicklaunch Icons Doesn't Work Anymore

Nov 2, 2015

I'm used to run files by drag'n'dropping them on top of one of the icons in quicklaunch. When I need to launch file with some app, while file is associated with another, or just use the other version of app. E.g. drag and drop png file on Paint icon or Photoshop icon, whether i need to edit it with on or another.

But now, when I drag a file of top of app in quicklaunch, icon turns to striked circle (). At the same time (what frustrates me even more), I can add a file/shortcut to qucklaunch by dragging it on the empty space (or between apps' shortcuts).

I have Windows 10 and everything was working just some time ago.

Can't Drag Icons To Desktop

Jan 10, 2016

I've just got a new laptop with Windows 10. I've managed to add some icons to the desktop (during installation), but I want to add more for quick use. I'm trying to add Windows Media Player (example). I open start, find WMP, click and hold, and drag onto desktop. However, there's an error sign and it will not transfer the icon to the desktop.

Image shows what I'm talking about. There's an error symbol and I cannot add WMP to my desktop at all. I had the same issue with my Gimp icon, but that added itself to my desktop when I downloaded a newer version. It also will not let me add MS Word to my desktop either, by dragging from the start menu. There's also no right-click option to "create desktop shortcut" like there was in previous Windows versions either. I've even tried pinning WMP to the start menu (in old versions this added it to a list near the top but pinning it doesn't seam to put it anywhere on the start bar at all?)

Apps :: Removing Windows Apps Sometimes Leaves Orphan Icons In Start Menu

Nov 30, 2015

I removed the Windows Apps (3D Builder, Groovy etc.) using PowerShell and Remove-AppxPackage / Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage on our Windows 10 machines (64bit, some Home, some Pro) at home.

This worked satisfying enough, but for some (very few) local users the start menu entries for those apps are not removed. I refer to "All Apps" (the A-Z list of all apps).

Situation is like this: application is removed (checked with Get-Appxpackage in Powershell)start menu still refers to the Windows Apps with the text entry; it does not show the icon, but a coloured rectangle (sized like an icon)application cannot be started through this icon (as it is uninstalled)

(Screenshot shows the Maps (german: Karten) and Contacts (german: Kontakte) "icons")

I checked the usual places:

C:UsersUSERNAMEAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuC:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuPrograms

But of course there are no links to those Windows Apps.

How to remove these orphan "icons" from the start menu (A-Z list)? What makes Windows show those entries in the start menu's A-Z list?

Dual Screens (Cannot Drag)

Aug 7, 2015

I have a secondary screen set up for movies or whatever while I play games and other things, there is a problem with dragging any program screen over to the secondary screen. For some reason when I try to drag it over it will just get stuck on the side of the screen and go half or quarter screen rather than breaking through to the other side. Is there a way for me to make it so I can still half and quarter screen but if I keep on pushing it, it will go on through to the second screen? or just make it so I can bring it to the second screen without the snapping?

Tiny Icons On All Apps

Jan 3, 2016

Whenever I open an app with icons for controls, they're all very, very tiny. This makes it hard to read what any of them are, and really hard to click on. I tried the "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" setting, but that doesn't impact the size of the icons within the apps at all. I have attached pictures for reference.

I'm on a 13.3 in Lenovo Yoga Pro 3.

How To Drag And Drop Programs To Desktop

Aug 11, 2015

I'm liking 10 the more I use it. However there are a few problems Microsoft has to deal with. In 7 it was easy to copy a program to the desktop. In 10 I've tried for a few hours and I can't seem to copy a program to desktop. In fact when I find a program I want to save to desktop, I can't do it. Is there a pro that knows the method?

Drag And Drop Not Working On New Install

Jul 31, 2015

After doing an upgrade from Win 7 to 10, I find that the drag & drop function isn't working. I've tried the fixes found here and on several other forums but no joy. I got the download from MS which also loaded the install files on a thumb drive. I then installed using the "save my files(upgrade)"settings.

Can't Drag And Drop Within Start Menu

Aug 2, 2015

Windows 10 doesn't seem to allow drag and dropping within the Start Menu... As a result, I can't place anything there which doesn't include a "Pin to Start" option upon right click.

I'm also unable to drag/drop onto existing Start Menu items (see attached). Is there a registry hack to correct this ...

Can't Drag Open Window Across The Screen Sometimes

Dec 29, 2015

It's a minor annoyance but once every 5-10 tries the mouse will fail to grab a program or explorer window when it should be dragging it across the screen. I'm positive it's not an issue with my wired mouse because I never had problems before Windows 10. Just to make sure I used the mouse to drag files and folders around over 100 times with perfect accuracy, so it's definately something funky related to just the title bar of any program.

Drag And Drop From Explorer To Gmail Or FB Or Twitter

Oct 18, 2015

I'm used to drag & drop pictures when I have to insert them inline in a mail, or in a FB post or in Twitter. With Windows 10 I cannot! AS you can see here, my dragged picture cannot be dropped down in Gmail.

It's really difficult having to push through folders to get the photo instead of drag there in a second.

Drag And Drop And Other Mouse Functions Are Disabled?

Dec 16, 2015

The new Operating System has damaged the mouse drag and drop usage in many of my programs that I use.

It takes between 5 and 20 times to effectively grab an item and move it to the location correctly with many false results in the meantime.

Also, many other mouse uses are affected as well, Marking items in lists and selecting multiple items really has become very hard to do.

Mostly MSN seems to have ignored these new problems and has made no effort to point out that they even exist.

Can't Drag And Drop Files On One Hard Drive

Dec 8, 2015

Ever since i've updated to Windows 10 i've been having an issue with permissions which im unable to fix.
Basically all of my software and files located on a non-system harddrive appear to be restricted in one way or another despite the fact that i've manually set all of the permissions and made myself an owner of all files.
Here are the examples of issues i've experienced:
1) I can't run any software i've installed on that hard drive unless im running it as administrator. This includes GOM player, Adobe Photoshop, Filezilla and other applications.
2) I can't drag and drop files from that hard drive to installed applications like GOM player or Adobe - it just won't let me.
3) I couldn't use archives and drag and drop files from and to archives without a warning about "harmful files" popping up constantly until i installed winrar on a system disk.
4) Some files gotten locked if they were downloaded using utorrent or any other application which downloads files. I think i was able to fix that by editing permissions and security settings in gpedit.msc and explorer though.

Apps :: Office XP Shortcut Bar Icons Do Not Display

Oct 2, 2015

I have used the Office XP shortcut bar with every windows version up to windows 7 without problems. When I upgraded to Windows 10, the Icons only show a ? and the program associated with the icon will only execute if I right click on the icon and click either open or run as administrator. The program name associated with the icon will display when I hover over the icon.

Is there any fix for displaying the actual icon picture? I have more programs that I use daily than would fit on the task bar. I don't want to clutter my desktop with icons. The shortcut bar allows me to organize my program icons in different task bars so I would like to continue using it.
