There is something incredibly broken in Windows 7 file handling. It happens when you download a file and then try to move it to another directory. Click the file, press Cntrl-X, go to the new directory and press Cntrl-V just like moving any other file. But instead of moving the file, it then tries to move THE ENTIRE DIRECTORY the file is placed in. Click cancel and it sits there literally as long as you are willing to wait with the "Cancelling" message on the dialog box. I have to kill Windows Explorer to get it to stop "Cancelling". After trying over and over and only getting the entire directory, I find that I have to REBOOT the computer to get it to recognize one file as a file instead of the whole directory it resides in. WTF is going on? How can something as supposedly polished as Win 7 be this STUPID? Is there just possibly a setting somewhere to control how it selects things?
