    My computer shows the same thing. I don't know how to fix it but if you move the icon farther to the right you can see what folder is highlighted.

    Alright, thanks anyway for the input. All my media files are associated with Potplayer, a korean media player I think, that I found to replace VLC. so that is the green icon, but its irrelevant, its just an example, the icon is always the type of file so it doesnt matter which file I drag, its just a different icons.

    my instincts tell me it should be in the visual effects (advanced system settings /performance)... but there is nothing in there that I do that makes any difference.

    oh well
    I tried turning off Show window contents while dragging and it had no effect. I wonder if it could be a problem with the graphic card driver.

    for folders with short names it doesnt work and there are a lot of those.

    I dont know, none of the visual effects settings make a difference, and some from windows 7 arent there anymore. I dont get why for some ppl its transparent and others not. honestly I'm baffled at how stupid this is.

    Greetings,

    I think the problem is the Theme you're using, I modified mine and I had the same issue with the icons not being transparent, however changing back to the Windows 10 theme results in transparent icons.

    It worked! thanks so much! I wouldn't have known or noticed since I did not modify the theme after upgrading to windows 10 and the opaque icons were there by default. Much better with transparency, thanks again!

    Is there realy no other way but changing the theme? Any way to show small icon when dragging? Why this huge icon, it's useless... and amazingly stupid.

    Since this icon serves no useful purpose, why can't I turn it off. It just gets in the way. I just want to move / copy a file. The potential target directory is already highlighted. Any solution to this problem?

    I'm using an alternative file browser. (xPLorer2) Choose one which has the option to turn this off.
