    Default WIN10: no more drag & drop files?

    Long time user with WIN/ I was used to drag and drop files into Irfanview window in order to open them.
    I switched to WIN10 and this doesn't work anymore and have always to go through File/open menu.

    Any clues?
    Thanks.

    I have been using Drag and Drop to open files in IrfanView for years in Windows 10. Double-click only works if the file associations are correct for that file type, but D&D works for any files.

    Thanks, well noted.
    I tested on my 2 laptops with WIN10 and the issue is the same.
    Might be a settings issue somewhere but really don't know where to check...

    AFAIK there is no setting for this in IrfanView. Can you drag and drop text files to notepad? If not, it might be a Windows settings that I don't know about.

    It's very strange: I can with Metapad and EditPlus but can't with Notepad, Notepad++ and Irfanview...
    And with Word 2010 I also can't: I only get a thumbnail inside the windw
    oow but was working fine on same computer with WIN7 before switching to 10.
