Windows 10 Tipp: Gewusst wie: deaktivieren Sie Drag & Drop

Die Aktion von Drag-and-Drop ist sehr nützlich und praktisch beim Verwalten von Dateien über Datei-Explorer, aber es auch zu einer Katastrophe führen könnte, wenn Sie versehentlich einen Server-Anwendung-Ordner auf einem Netzlaufwerk an einen anderen Speicherort verschoben, which could be a nightmare to recover. And that’s why in some environment the convenient action is better disabled to avoid such incidents.

Windows 10 doesn’t offer a GUI to let you to simply enable and disable the Drag-and-Drop feature but you can do so through a registry tweak. Dank Winaero for the tip.

Open Registry Editor and navigate to the following registry key location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop

You will find two values on the right panel, DragHeight & DragWidth, which define the distance in pixel you need to Ziehen Sie the file in order to fire up the Tropfen Aktion, default by 4 Pixel. In einem anderen Wort, changing both values with an enormous number will prevent the Tropfen action from happening, which basically disables the Drag-and-Drop action in general.

Jedoch, there is a downside if you change both values to a very large number. You will find it’s very hard and difficult to move any windows around on your desktop. Also, choosing a right number is important here. You may need to do a few tests before settling down.

Double-click DragHeigh and DragWidth, type in a larger number of your choice such as 100 und drücken Sie die Eingabetaste.

Einmal durchgeführt, log off and log back in with the same user account to make the change take effect. Restarting the Explorer process may work as well but if not, try the log-in cycle before giving up.

That’s how you can disable the Drag-and-Drop feature on Windows. It works only on Windows 10 aber unter Windows 7 und Windows 8.1 Auch. Genießen Sie.
