Windows Explorer Shell



I have to edit a database using data from pdf files. I open the explorer,
select 20 pdf files, and right click to choose "open". The files open in my
associated application, but I also get 40 dialog boxes asking me where to
move and copy the files. I don't want to move or copy the folders, so I
click cancel 40 times. How do I shut off this feature? It seems to be in
the shell, because other explorer alternatives behave the same way.




Try hitting enter instead of right clicking on them. You are probably
dragging them slightly and it thinks you want to copy or move them. You
could also use TweakUI to lower the drag sensitivity of your mouse.
