Windows 7: Copy dialogs pop up over Confirm File Replace Dialog

Copy dialogs pop up over Confirm File Replace Dialog

one thing I can't understand why they still have not fixed the file replace bug.

copy a file to a server - you get the confirm file replace dialog then a second later the copying dialog pops up over it.

Been the same since XP...

why can't this all be in the same dialog?

Not to quote a different OS - but apple has a much better file copying system - copy dialogs are all grouped together with confirmations grouped.

Anyone got any ideas about this?

Any fixes to keep focus or even position the windows?

Ugh! They should make the developers @ M$ use the stuff they make.

Totally agree, but also all the top execs too. But it probably wouldn't do much good since all they probably use windows for is turning it on and watching the pretty colors.

How can I 'Copy and Replace' not 'Move and Replace'.
For some reason W7 has decided to change 'Copy and Replace' with 'Move and Replace' when picking a file up with the left mouse and dragging it to another folder where an old version of the file exists. My Excel SS is in two places: My desktop and USB which I use for backup. I would simply open...
