Windows 7: Replace file? Have to click "Yes" Twice. Why?

Replace file? Have to click "Yes" Twice. Why?

C'mon ye ole Guru's HELP!

When I drag and drop a file that I have made changes to into a folder where the unchanged file resides I get the normal window below. If it is multiple files I get the Yes To All option. No Matter What I do I have to click the Yes, with a single file twice, the same for multiple files and clicking the Yes To All button. If I want to cancel I have to hit it twice!

Why?

Are there Folders included? It will ask once for Files and again when replacing a Folder. If that's the case, it's normal. I also think (?) it will ask for each File type.

You can also hit "Y" on the keyboard. It should speed things up.

No folders included and the same file type.

They are spread sheets. I make changes and then drag and drop into the root of other hard drives for backup where they overwrite the previous versions.

I found out what is going on, not a fix but here it is.

I run dual displays on a card with two DVI inputs. I usually have the source folder "Documents" on one display and the destination folder "Computer" showing the list of drives on the other display. One day I had both folders on the same display and it worked as normal asking me if I want to replace the file(s). BAM, one "Yes To All" and its done.

If I have one folder on each display it asks me twice with the same message even if I choose "Yes To All".
If I have one folder on one display and the other spanning across both displays it will only need one confirmation.

SheesH! I'm just glad I got to the bottom of it.
