    We have a registry hack deployed at work where you create two new keys here:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

    new values: default value

    Copy To: {C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
    Move To: {C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

    Quite a common hack and very useful. However with the hack applied if I highlight two documents and tell them to print either of the copy or move dialog boxes will come up. With the hacks removed it works fine, can anyone replicate this? Or even provide a fix?

    Interesting.....just tried 2 of my machines and I have exactly the same issue. Never noticed it before. If I right click a single document and hit print, works fine. Weird. :crosseyed:

    Here you are EP - not a solution, but an explanation.

    CTRL+X and CTRL+C work fine, and Windows Explorer is easy enough to navigate for me. That is one of the coolest glitches I've ever seen.

    Yeah, I also don't use the copy to/move to either, but it was part of a new build we just released, not something we will notice I guess..

    Good work finding the explanation tho ! :)
