Well so far we can't seem to find one. I would appear that there is
something about your particular setup that disallows the actions you
wish to make. If you have checked the three settings Knows98
The only possibility I can think of is in:
Internet Options | turn off the 2 options for Auto-complete, click
Also do you have the "single-click" option enabled in Explorer ?
View | Folder Options | General tab | Custom button (if you do
Also enable the "Detect accidental double-clicks" option in Explorer.
View | Folder Options | View tab, click Apply\Ok
then you are probably going to have to take one of the other methods
people suggested as a workaround. Maybe someone will recognize what
setting you have set different but it doesn't look promising. I even
tried using Ctrl C as you stated this time instead of right click copy
and I can not make my machine do what yours is doing.
