To move a folder or selected files I use the other method of copy and paste.
Once the files and/or folders are highlighted then I can press Control+C. now I click once in the target folder and press Control+V. This method avoids any accidental drops along the way.

I have what I hope is a minor settings issue
I’ve just replaced my 7 year old Toshiba satellite laptop with HP Notebook - 15-af107au, I’m immensely fond of the new laptop (and of windows 10 incidentally, 8 will forever be the bane of my existence) however I am having one issue with it.
On the Toshiba when I highlight a folder or some text to drag it to another location I could move my finger along the touchpad to the edge at which the curser would continue to move on screen while I applied pressure to the edge of the touchpad.
On the new HP when I reach the edge of the touchpad the curser stops, typically short of wherever it is that I wanted to drag the folder or text forcing me to cut and paste.
It’s only a little thing and it’s the only thing on the HP that bothers me, but it does drive me mad.
Is there a way to change the settings of the touchpad such that the curser will continue to move when I reach the edge?
