Complete frustration with windows 7 .....

Seriously, has nobody come up with a fix for the drag drop issue in Windows 7??? These posts are almost a year old and I don't see any answers to any of the questions concerning drag and drop for photos! Are we just screwed? Just went out and spent mega buck's on a new computer and wish I had my old piece of **** back......at least it did minimual things

That is an issue that MS doesn't seem to care about. For 2½ years, I have been asking people to let MS know how you feel here.

The developers removed the Auto-Arrange option in Windows 7. Either of these third party fixes will add it back so you can disable it.
