    OK...I open a folder in windows(2K)...(say MP3's that I've down-
    loaded)...NOW, I want to move a specific MP3 "FILE" (in the right
    hand window) to a specific "FOLDER" in the left hand window...
    SOOO, I right click on the file and "MOVE" to the folder in the
    left hand window....However, the folder in the left hand
    window keeps on moving up and down and when I try to
    follow (while holding the right click "MOVE"), it seems like
    the folder won't settle down...(up and down---Up and down)
    Sooner or later(5-7 sec or so) it will settle and I can finish the
    "MOVE"....BUT, it's kind of annoying....Any ideas or comments..
    Or is it just a quirk of 2k(I seem to remember it doing the same
    thing on 98)...Tks

    James, is it a "shakeing" motion, or is the folder actuly moving away from your curser as your moving files?

    The moving is NOT done by my hand(mouse)...When I
    "MOVE" (right hand click) the file from the right hand window
    to the folder in the left hand window, the printing WILL stop
    at the left hand folder, but THEN the folder moves up or down
    and when I follow with the "MOVE", the folder moves up or
    down again until it finally stops (5-7 sec) and the I release
    the move and everything OK.

    I have experimented with my system and found a simular situation.

    Try to expand the left hand window so you have more room. It may be that you are reaching a point at witch the window automaticly scrolls up or down according to the mouse.

    Please let me know if this has helped

    When I expand the WHOLE window(screen), it certainly DOES
    help...When I have a very small vertical screen, then it jumps
    up and down...(horizontal has no effect)...The bummer is,
    that I personally like small screens when I'm transfering MP3
    Files to various Folders.....Guess I"ll have to think of somthing
    different...Thanks much shadow

    not really a fix but heres a suggestion.

    highlight all the files you want to move by CTRL+Clicking, right click > cut. click on the folder you want to move them to on the left pane. Then right click in the right pane > choose paste.
