    Enable or Disable, either or and one can figure the other, but Enable or Disable Drag and Drop of Files/Folders in EXPLORER via the Registry. This is NOT about the desktop, NOT the Internet, Not the StartMenu. That should surely narrow it down i hope :D

    I have a similar post but not for WIndows Xp but not Windows 7 and while I am told its similar for XP/7 I have not found the case..... Vista I am told is slightly different yet. But, I am looking for registry edit/tweak under a similar key such as in the HKCU or HKLM as listed (should be close):


    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer

    Whether I was off on the timing/correation I have tried the following Keys/Subkey names: EnableDragDrop, DisableDragDrop, DragDrop, DragAndDrop....... noe of these seem to have an effect.

    I toyed with these but were not any of the issue (or before): HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones.......

    - Thank You!

    I think you are looking for DropHandler but you will find DropHandler plenty of times in the registry.
