    Default Suppress Icons When Dragging Files?

    I'm new to Vista, having finally made the switch last week.

    When I drag files in My Computer using Details view, an icon showing the type of file always pops up. It obscures the folder list for my destination and makes it much more likely to drop the files in the wrong folder.



    I haven't yet found a way to suppress this particular icon setting. Can anyone help?

    Do yourself a favor and don't "drag" files. Use Add Copy To / Move To on Windows Vista Right-Click Menu :: the How-To Geek

    ^ You can also use our Ultimate Windows Tweaker to achieve the same easily or refer our tutorial on this too

    I usually use Ctrl+C or Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V to copy/move files, but when they're in the Windows Explorer list right in front of me and the destination is also right in front of me I will drag them 'cause it's faster.
