    Drag & Drop question


    I know I'm late to the game but I just started using Windows 10 more and finally activated it and did a fresh install on a new system and the Drag & Drop is annoying me. It has a light blue color when it highlights the target folder that I'm dropping a file into and it drags an Icon for the file that's slightly transparent. I want to (most importantly) get rid of that icon and (2nd) make the color of the target folder darker. Is there a way to do this? It's like a baby blue or light sky blue. At least I could see it better if the icon was not there.

    It's designed that way to let you know you're dropping into the correct folder.
    We pretty much just try to get used to all these... er... improvements. :/

    I think you miss read me, I know it's suppose to highlight the folder, I want it to do that, . . . That's not my main concern, my main concern is getting rid of the icon that goes with the drag. What the hell were they thinking when they added that?

    They weren't... thinking.

    I tried looking online for you, for like 15 minutes. It's liek a forced feature that you cannot seem to be able to turn off.

    It apparently was introduced in a theme in Windows 7. You can make that "feature" disappear when you use the classic theme in Windows 7. This is a forced "feature" in the current Windows theme, I don't know if this is included in all themes. I don't even know how to change my Windows theme to something completely different. so... that's what I learned,.
