Windows 7: WINDOWS TEAM--PLEASE fix the "drag and drop" issue !

WINDOWS TEAM--PLEASE fix the "drag and drop" issue !

This is a desperate plea to the Windows 7 team to PLEASE fix the inability to "drag and drop" photos in order to rearrange them in your "My Photos" area! For some reason, this feature does not work, and it is absolutely MADDENING and frustrating to try to group or edit photo placements within either the folders or "My Photos" section!

I am using a new "Eee" netbook running Windows 7, and I bought this version SPECIFICALLY because I was SURE that Windows 7 would totally rock, after my experience and love for Woindows XP on my PC. And then, this.....I could just about scream.

Please, if anyone has a fix in SIMPLE terms--maybe a link, or a download?-- I'm not really good at computer lingo and processes, so make it simple. please!

Thank you!!!!

Ugh. You're totally right. I suppose you could view in 'details' mode, if that makes it any better...

Windows 7: Home Premium

Its not just photos as well, theirs been a few times when I've wanted to move a photo or video but when you drag it the usual black line doesn't show up any more. Kind of a basic feature to leave out for no apparent reason.

Windows 7 on an Eee netbook with Intel "atom inside"

Yes, this feature has apparently been omitted "by design", which means it was intentionally left out--a GLARING omission!
I am an author for a hobby/modeling magazine, and I need to be able to rearrange my photos in a cohesive series of "steps"--assembly, preparation, painting, finishing, etc, and the lack of the ability to move thumbnails into order makes my computer, for all practical purposes, worthless to me for my work.

I sincerely hope that the Windows team comes up with a fix for this in the next month or so, or I willl be forced to resell my Asus netbook and purchase one the runs XP. And THAT would seriously piss me off.

Windows Explorer Navigational drop "feature"
Something that has bothered me since I installed Win7 is the way WE handles folder navigation. When one clicks on the arrow next to a folder (left pane), often, the folder drops to the bottom of the left pane. And often, there is a short delay before it does so. This irritates me to no end....

Drag and Drop - No Longer "Public"
I was backing up a folder in the "Public" folder to a CD. Rather than copying and pasting, I had two incidents of Windows Explorer open, and dragged and dropped into the CD burning window. An unexpected result was that no other computers on the network could see the transferred files in the public...
