Drag & Drop from Desktop to FX (Administrator)

#1 Post by jpo » 02.11.2018, 09:12

Hi,

if I use FreeCommander with Administrator Rights, I cannot drag files e.g. from Desktop into FC. If FC is not started with Admin-Rights, it works as expected.

Steps to reproduce (FreeCommander XE, Build 784 64-bit donor, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit):
- Start FreeCommander with Administrator rights
- Drag a file from Desktop into FC
As soon as the mouse is over FC, it changes to the "I cannot drop here"-icon, and releasing the mouse does not result in a copy/move action.

Best
Jan-Patrick

It is not a bug.
It is Windows feature. If you want to use drag&drop do not start FC as admin.
By the way, that also applies to other programs.
