Dragging files "misses" their target

    Very often in XP I find that when dragging files to another folder they don't end up where you want them but in the folder below the intended one. Anyone else?

    I think you just need to be a little more careful to make sure the folder you are targeting is still highlighted when you release the mouse button. It can be tricky sometimes.

    you most likely dropped them wrong, and accidently dropped them in the other folder, have to be careful......

    Hmm, don't think so! :)
    I've used computers for many years now and I've never had problems with this before, but now with XP it's happening over and over. Could be something with my new Logitech optical wireless mouse mayby. It's really strange. I move the files and hold the mouse pointer over a folder and see it turn grey, let go of the files and look inside the folder.. nothing!
