Dragging and dropping should have worked.
Right click on the Start button in the lower left corner of the Desktop then left click on Properties. Click on Customize > Advanced tab. Scroll down to and place a check mark beside Enable Dragging and dropping. Then click on OK > Apply > OK. Now dragging and dropping should be working.
A convenient option that I frequently use to move files around is Context Magic, and the price can't be beat.

Hello, I saw a very similar problem here (but only for Win95/98):
...and hope someone could help me too? I created 5 backup folders on my desktop. Now I wanted to move all of them into one folder I just created in MyDocuments named "BACKUPS". I tried to do it by dragging and dropping but didn't work, so I had to cut and paste and...when I opened the folders I had moved, a popup message said "File no longer in existence"!
Anyone knows what I did wrong? And what would be the proper way to move folders from the desktop to a folder within MyDocuments?
I don't mind having lost these folders as they were backed up files and I can back up again, but I need to know how to do it. Thanks so much for any help you can grant me. Adela
