Arranging picture/item manually?

Normally when i drag a picture or item over another, it will replace or take over its place, but when i use window 7, i can no longer do this. What is wrong actually?

Hello GradeAbra,

This can show you how to disable auto arrange in Windows Explorer to allow you to arrange items how you like in Windows Explorer. This will not work in library folders though.

Windows Explorer Auto Arrange - Disable

Hope this helps,
