    win 10

    change Windows 10 drag files (icon/cursor size)

    When I drag a file to move to a folder in Windows 10, the icon that shows is so large that it hides the folder name. I want to know how can I re-size the icon that shows, or remove it altogether? (I tried the Folder Option "always show icons and not thumbnails, but its not related). I need it to be like previous Windows behavior of that action. Thanks.

    I don't think this can be done. This question has been asked in the passed and it's topic consensus was that it was not possible to do.
    Links i'll refer you to read are:

    Disable Large Icon when Drag/Drop Files to New Location - Page 2 - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Huge icon at pointer during drag and drop (Explorer) - Page 5

    in both cases the conclusion was : not possible
