Windows 7: Context menu actions not displayed when doing drag and drop

Context menu actions not displayed when doing drag and drop

Hello,

I've been using using Win 7 Pro x64 for several weeks now, before that I used XP Pro x32.

I'm facing a really annoying issue regarding the context menu in the explorer.

I have several applications using the context menu, such as Winamp, IZArc or my antivirus, i.e. a right clic on a file or folder displays special context menu entries related to these programs.

But when I drag and drop a file using the right button, the context menu only displays "default" entries: Copy here, Move here, Create shortcut here, Cancel.

Other entries (Winamp, IZArc, antivirus) are NOT displayed. Oo

This has always worked fine with my other PC.

Do you guys know how to fix this ?

Regards

I suggest you use this facility instead of drag and drop. It is safer anyhow.

Thank you for the pointer, but I must admit that I don't see the link with the issue I'm facing.

I'm especially annoyed by "missing" context menu entries during a drag'n drop, when I want to unzip a file to another explorer window already opened.
