    Copying / moving files form Win Explorer not possible?


    When I try to copy / move a file or folder from the Win Explorer (as admin) to another program this sign is shown, transferring is not possible:



    How could I make it work?

    Back in Win8 it was renamed to File Explorer but still works the same. File Explorer is the file management part of Windows and also pretty much the core of Windows, if it doesn't work Windows won't run.

    I have no issues in Copying or Moving files from one drive to another but that's not the same as copying to a program. Generally one opens the program in question then opens the file or files it can work with. Having that information usually is helpful.

    Thank you very much, Berton.

    So "Explorer" now is called "File Explorer", didn't know that. And the core, I didn't know either.

    Generally one opens the program in question then opens the file or files it can work with.
    Yes, and when I try to transfer files / folders then it does not work, that sign is shown.

    Many thanks again
