Windows 7: stop CTRL Drag Copy?

stop CTRL Drag Copy?

Is it possible to remove the CTRL + Drag Hotkey? Sometimes I try and select multiple items and the mouse slips, then it copy's the whole selection. This is a really irritating feature that i never use.

Hello Sam,

Not that I know of, but you might try using the select with check boxes feature to do this instead to see if it may work better for you.

Hope this helps,
