    Solved...Removal of Quick access and DnD

    To anyone having this problem,

    I'm not sure when it started, but all of a sudden I discovered that I did not have the ability to Drag and Drop a file from File Explorer's right pane to the left pane. I get the circle with line through it indicating that I can't do that. I can drag and drop a file within the right pane but not to the left pane. To move a file, I could only copy or cut and paste.

    I wondered if some of the registry tweaks that I performed to clean up the Navigation Pane some days earlier might be causing the anomaly. I had followed Shawn's tutorials to remove Videos, Pictures and Music folders. I also removed HomeGroup and Quick Access. His instructions worked flawlessly.

    To see if any of those tweaks was causing the DnD problem, I systematically reversed each one, one at a time. Here is my finding.

    As soon as I restored Quick access my ability to Drag and Drop in File Explorer was restored! To verify my findings, I removed Quick access and lost my DnD again. Restored it a regained DnD again. I Hope this can help those who are having the DnD problem.

    I do prefer the old Favourites over Quick Access.

How do you remove Quick access from the left side of your folders when you have the navigation enabled? I can remove all of the icons under it just fine, but I cannot remove Quick access as a whole.
