Windows 7: Question about autoplay and files in explorer

Question about autoplay and files in explorer

Hello,

I just recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my PC and I have couple of questions regarding it:

1. Next problem is about putting one file below or up the other one in Windows Explorer, for example:

File1.txt
File2.txt


When I try to drag and drop File1.txt below File2.txt so it looks like this:

File2.txt
File1.txt


I just can't, it dosen't work. But on my desktop I can do it without problem. Any way to fix this or workaround so I can freely move my files in Windows Explorer?

2. I'm having some applications when I run them in lower right corner, for example : "Windows Live Messanger" and some applications like "SlySoft AnyDVD". I was wondering, why when I one-left click "Windows Live Messanger" I get his options like I did right click on him, while when I click "SlySoft AnyDVD" it opens the whole application just like I would like it? Only when I double left click "Windows Live Messanger" it opens me whole window of the application.


Thanks!

Using Windows Explorer, there is NO solution to this Problem.

Well, can you please explain me why is this not possible anymore? What caused Microsoft to remove this function as it's so important to some users?

No, I cannot explain why this is not possible anymore. I use photo management software to overcome this nuisance (IrfanView Thumbnails).

You actually changed your "second" question.

Every program has a default action for the System Tray icon. Some programs allow you to modify the default action, others do not. Learn what each icon does. You have the option of right clicking each icon and choosing an action.
