Windows 7: Can't Drag/Drop the URL Favicon from Chrome to a W7 Folder

Can't Drag/Drop the URL Favicon from Chrome to a W7 Folder

I cannot drag/drop the URL favicon in the Chrome browser to a Windows 7 folder, although I can drag/drop it to the top area desktop (but not any other desktop location) and then drag/drop that shortcut to the folder.

What is most strange is this problem occurs only on my desktop W7 system, but not on my netbook W7 system.

Just a thought, can you copy and paste?
