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.
