Drag & Drop Feature

Having used Windows 10 Pro now for a while I can't say anything good about it, zero.

Always used Drag & Drop in previous Widows operating systems a very useful feature, but it seems that feature is no longer available in Windows 10. I read where you can disable UAC in the registry but it seems doing that creates other issues so I won't go there. It seems that the only other way to move a file from one folder to another is via cut and paste which is a pain in the butt if you have a lot of files to move.

Is there any other way to drag and drop files or folder in W10 ?

Thanks & Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you also.
A lot has changed in Win 10, some features lost from previous versions. But the default use of the right-click on a file or folder, then drag to another location, should give the choice of 'move' or 'copy'.
May be an easy resolve here.. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/380 ... ndows.html

There is no option to MOVE. Just CUT & COPY

You can COPY and PASTE like all other Windows. I still use Teracopy to copy files as it doesn't stop completely with no warning if there is an issue copying files (such as a duplicate file). I have also selected all files and just moved them over to other drives with no issue.

Merry Christmas.
