Hi jocubed, welcome to the forums.
I've seen similar issues with explorer as far a the manipulation of files is concerned. I did, however, manage to fix the issue I had a few months back.
If you open up explorer (in any folder) and click 'Organise' and 'Folder & Search options' you can 'Restore defaults' in the general tab, and 'reset folders' in the view tab.
Hope it works
