Windows 7: Cannot Drag and Drop Pictures Into Frontpage

Cannot Drag and Drop Pictures Into Frontpage

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post in...please let me know if this should go someplace else.

All I do is upload pictures to my Yahoo Small Business webhost and then insert them into eBay auction templates for items that I'm selling.

To do this, I've used Frontpage 2002 for the last 4 years on a computer with Vista. One of the nicest things I could do was drag and drop pictures from my webhost using MSIE8 right into Frontpage...saved a lot of time!!!

I just bought a new PC with Windows 7 64bit, re-installed Frontpage, but can no longer drop pix from MSIE8.

I've updated Windows and Frontpage and have them as current as possible as far as I can tell.

I even upgraded to MSIE9...still can't drop pix into Frontpage.

SOOO, I've installed Sharepoint Designer 2007 & Seamonkey and still can't drag and drop from the webhost.

I'm thinking this is not an issue with Frontpage or Sharepoint, but have no idea how to fix this.

Any suggestions???

thnx

Is Frontpage and the others running as Administrator? (i.e. Run as...)

I've read this, but Frontpage does everything it used to do with Vista except allow me to drag and drop pictures from my webhost using MSIE9 right into Frontpage.

Besides, it won't allow me to drag and drop pictures from the webhost to Sharepoint Designer 2007 & Seamonkey which should definitely be compatible with Windows 7.

All I ever get is a circle with a line through it!!??

PS: Firefox and Chrome don't work either, but they didn't work before when I used Vista and Frontpage.

I am not altogether familiar with FrontPage, but I wonder if there is a corruption with that installation? Is there a 'repair' tool? Maybe uninstall and re-install?

Sorry to appear to be grasping at 'straws', but regrettably I don't have anything else to offer. Maybe another member will have some ideas.

Thanks, but I've tried all that!

I think it's either a Windows 7 or an MSIE problem since I can no longer drag and drop these pictures using any of the 3 web design programs!

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction!!!!

When you run IE does it say "Protection Mode: On" in that status bar?

Boy, I was hopeful this would do the trick, but it's the same.

I can drag the pictures onto my desktop, but not into Frontpage!!??

I figured it out. I have to turn off UAC, then I can open Frontpage without being asked by UAC for permission (which I thought was strange...never happened in Vista) AND I can drag right from my webhost file manager opened in MSIE and drop the pictures right into Frontpage.

QUESTION:

1) I hate leaving UAC off. Is there any other way besides turning it off each time and rebooting?

2) If I have to turn off UAC, is there a way to create a shortcut to turn it off?

thnx

Unable to drag drop to ZIP and RAR
Not sure if this is just a problem with Win x64 but unable to drag drop to either a ZIP or RAR file under explorer. Can drag and drop normal files to other folders/drives but when trying with a ZIP or RAR all I get is the line thru' the 0 - so a no go. Have a laptop with Win7 x86 and that works...
