JPEGS - Unwanted Duplication

I am running Windows 7. I use Microsoft Photo Editor for saving and viewing jpegs. When I hold down the
CTRL key to select only specific photos, and start clicking on the photos to highlight them and transfer them to
another folder, all of the selected photos are suddenly "copied" so now there are two copes of everyone of the
photos I have just selected.

I went a bit further to troubleshoot this and tried the same method of holding down the CTRL key and
selecting only specific word docs instead of jepgs, and the same issue happens.
Is there a way to stop this annoying issue?

You could just right click and select 'cut' instead of dragging photos. the other option is instead of left clicking when you drag them, right click. When you release the mouse button, you should be prompted with a dialog box to select copy or move.. Hope that helps!
