Drag & Drop - Problem

I am having problem with saving the images wid dragging it on desktop

in all previous versions we were able to drag the images from our browser and drop it on desktop but can't do it in 7 ?

though i can do drag images directly from browsers in FOLDERS !!

if it is still possible it would be much easier, better !!

What build are you running? (e.g. build 7000, 7077, 7100 etc)

I've just tried it on 7201 & it works fine. Do you get any messages popup?

I'll try & look into it for you. Did you upgrade, or clean install as upgrades can cause some unpredictable behaviour.

You can also 'restore' the active window (Win Key+Down) & drag & drop that way.
