I used to be able to have a folder on my desktop and then collect files to put into it. I would do a right click on the file and then click on the 'move to' and then designate the folder to where the file should go. Or I could drag the file to the folder and drop it in.

Lately I am noticing that files will no longer go into a folder no matter the method I use. They just jump to the side of the folder and stay there. I have to open the folder and then drag the file in.

Anyone have an idea what I might have done to alter this operation or what I can do to cause it to work as it used to?

Try a simple cut and paste. Right click the file and select cut or CTRL+X then right click the folder and paste or CTRL+V.

Fast reply - works just fine! Now can you resolve how I can get back to the drag and drop method like I used to do or the 'move to' method? I am wondering what happened that these methods suddenly stopped working - or rather what I did :whistling:

And thanks for the tip of how to cut/paste the icon.
