Windows 7: Cannot move/copy files within folder

09 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7068
Cannot move/copy files within folder

In Vista one could move files within a folder to whatever location manually simply by dragging the file to the desired location within the folder. In WIN7 everything seems to be locked and moving a file (for example image file) to the end of a row of other files within a folder won't work. How to solve this. Any setting I overlooked?

They don't give you that option in Windows 7 yet and not sure if they will in latter builds either.

I am also having this problem - its a real pain. Why have they removed this option in Windows 7? It has just reduced the functionality of the program. Come on Microsoft - this is definitely one to sort out
