drag and drop not working

Post by emsonacid » 09 Feb 2020 00:24

Hello,
I can not drag and drop files to open them in HxD. I've read it is possible and I found people talking about it in the forums.
I've tried the installed and the portable version.
It's really annoying to always have to browse through win file explorer to open a file.
Would appreciate any help.
Thank you.

If you run HxD as administrator (actually any program that is run with admin privileges) you cannot drag and drop any files.

Let me know if running HxD as normal user fixes it.

(Another possibility would be that you maybe set some compatibility options for Windows 10/HxD, that somehow disable drag and drop.)
