Windows 7: Force windows/explorer to ask for confirmation of mouse dragdrops?

Force windows/explorer to ask for confirmation of mouse dragdrops?

Multiple users with read/write authority on a mapped server drive allways leave problems as misplaced files or folders.

Is there a way to force windows to allways ask for confirmation on mouse operations!!

That's definitely impossible!! Or someone has to write a shell extender that intercepts "drag and drop"

Teach your users to drag and drop with the right mouse button instead of the left. Then, you'll always get confirmation on what you want to do.
