ID:	53123when dragging files in win 10 the icon is so big that u can not see where u r dragging to.
    Is there a way to turn this feature off ?


    IN THE SCREEN CAPTURE WHEN I DRAG A FILE THIS ICON GOES WITH THE DRAGGING FILE AND MAKE IT HARD TO SEE WHERE YOU ARE DROPPING IT. CAN IT BE CHANGED TO HIDDEN OR SOMETHING>?

    You can try hiding the task-bar to see if that helps. Otherwise you can't hide the ICON.

    I'd like to suggest the Copy To and Move To Context Menu.
    You click at the location you want the item to be, and Copy To or Move To options will do the rest. Easy and accurate.

    Please use this tutorial

    The tutorial is applicable to Windows 10. I use it in my 2 Win 10 laptops.

    If you need to know how to use it, please post back. It's very simple.

    From your screenshot, you already have all the checkboxes ticked.
    If you want to transfer them to another location, right click at one of the file > click Copy To ( or Move To ) > navigate to the location you want > click at the location folder > click Copy ( or Move ).
    That's it. All the files will be copied or moved to a new location.

    I have no idea how you get that "icon" you mentioned. Can't help you there.

    Note :
    Copy To means you make another copy to a new location.
    Move To means the item is relocated to a new location.
