Problem on changing Default Copy Handler

Hello,
I have been using TeraCopy as my DCH in the past two years,
But since i made my customized desktop & installed it won't become my DCH
even though the settings is to make it DCH, i have installed other Copy Handlers
but all of them came with the same issue that they won't become DCH,
clearly the problem is in my PC/Windows, Please tell me if any one knows how to fix this?
Specially that i have a lot to Copy & Move files to do, because of my line
of work & i am really sick of windows DCH.

What do you mean by since i made my customized desktop?

What happens if you remove the customization?

Exactly, See the picture:-
The only thing i think that will work in this case
is to set the DCH value in the Registry to =0!!!!
But i don't know how nor if it possible/will it work?

I searched the registry for teracopy and found lots of locations but none that seemed to have anything to do with DCH (default copy handler). Do you know what key that is?

Hmmm, just noticed TeraCopy does not get used for me either when I drag and drop files, at least I don't see the TeraCopy window pop up.

Actually i don't really remember about Drag-n-Drop,
because usually i copy/move files that is larger than 1GB
between HardDisks, & in my laptop TeraCopy was the manager!

Ah, just tried a large file between two drives and TeraCopy handled it, so it is working for me.

Try creating a new user account and set TeraCopy as the DCH there maybe, see if that makes a difference?
