    It seems like a damned weird solution; why removing IrfanView permissions for the User account should be necessary for everything to work correctly I cannot even guess at.
    Thanks for the clarification.
    I managed to find those settings but only needed to remove this permission at folder level as the .exe file was correctly set after that.
    Please note that I also had to remove inheritance of permissions in order to be able to remove this one and that unchecking "run as admin" was not needed in my case as already set that way.

    Finally SOLVED and many thanks to n3306tx for sharing this solution!

    It works with File Explorer and also with more recent versions of Total Commander.
    have been using irfanview for 10-15 years, win10 for as long as it's been available. problem started a few days ago -- no drag and drop onto irfanview.
    i've gone so far as to reinstall the OS, knowledgeably tinkered with the registry , and the problem remains.
    unlike others here, my drag and drop fails from file explorer, doublecommander, and freecommander. however, each of those will drag/drop that same file onto the windows desktop, or into other windows apps like wordpad. killing and restarting explorer does no good. and, because i just refreshed my OS, i know it's not a corrupt explorer.exe ...

    am open to other possibilities.

    Use the IrfanView Thumbnail Viewer instead of Windows Explorer.

    Instead, I went looking for a version that doesn't have the problem -- 4.35 . At the moment, it does everything i want, and doesn't have anything i've yet noticed that annoys me. I will definitely keep your suggestion in mind when circumstances change
