I'm trying to drag and drop media files on my desktop into a folder on my desktop but every time I try to carry out this INCREDIBLE BASIC task the media player immediately starts playing the selected file I'm trying to drag and drop.  Wow!  I'd never thought such a basic task could become a problem.  Yet Windows has found a way to do this?

 

Another issue I have is using the calculator; I'll start it up from the Start Menu.  If I enter numbers into the Calc too quickly, the Calc adds extra digits as it gets excited by my fast pressing of the numbers?  I then have to go back and delete the unnecessary digits or I end up just using my phone.  Yet again, another retarded feature.

 

Can't copy and paste from websites - this may not be a Win 10 issue and more to do with sites running anti-search engine software but when I highlight text on a website I have to try several times to copy and paste the relevant part as the copy function seems to often get rejected.

 

Generally, I don't use Windows 10 for much because I know that as soon as I try to do anything vaguely complicated there'll be 'issues', which'll require extensive experience and knowledge to deal with, which is beyond the scope of most 'ordinary people'.

 

If I've paid money for a software licence, then I expect total functionality but that seems to be beyond the scope of Windows.  Am I able to get my money back for having to google answers to retarded problems, which should never have been allowed to enter the system code to begin with?

Hi,

 

It appears as if the mouse is not clicking properly - does not distinguish between a single and a double click. Perhaps you can verify by checking the settings in Control Panel >> Mouse

 

If you're using a Logitech mouse and the settings don't work, try with another mouse or repair the Logitech mouse. (there are many videos on YouTube ). Just enter >>repair my Logitech mouse<< in the search field and you will get many results and see the problem and its solution.

 

Post back and let us know how it went.

 

Regards,

Besides a broken mouse, the OP seems to be having other hard ware issues. I read every word that the OP wrote twice through and these definitely sound like hardware issues.

What is the version and build do you have installed?

 

To determine which version and build of Windows 10 you are running press the Windows key OS4o0pO.png, type in winver, then press Enter.  Post this information in your topic.

 

Have you tried uninstalling the mouse driver in the Device Manager to see if this resolves that problem?

 

I would suggest running the System File Checker to determine if there is any file corruption.

 

Please run System File Checker.

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Important:  There will be a short message at the end of the scan informing you of the results.  If you receive the message "no integrity violations were found" you don't need to do anything else, no corrupt files were found.  You should watch the scan to see the results at the end of the scan.

This needs to be run using an Administrator account.  

Click/tap on the Search icon (magnifing glass)in the Taskbar and type cdm.

You will see Command Prompt under Best match, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

Copy and paste the command below in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.

sfc /scannow

This scan will take a while to run, please do not abort the scan as this can result in damage to the operating system.

If integrity issues are found in the scan please post the CBS log using the instructions below.

To find sfc /scannow log open the Command Prompt, copy and paste the command below, then press Enter.

copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt

This will place the log on your desktop.  Copy and paste the log at the host website I've suggested below.

This log usually is very large, for this reason you should use a host website like Dropbox to post the log.  You can start a free 30 day trial.  Once you have loaded the log at Dropbox post a link to the website.
 


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Every time I see a post such as this one I have to ask, "Why does anyone believe that misbehavior like that described is in any way "normal" or characteristic under any operating system?"

 

There are clearly issues, probably with both hardware and the OS software, involved here.  Corrupt OS installations and those running on wonky hardware are bound to have problems.

 

dc3 has offered a reasonable starting point.  My only addition is for someone who hasn't attached much, if anything, to the BC website is that this forum allows attachments and even a huge text file is not a huge file, so should be easily attachable if one hits the "More Reply Options" button at the lower right of the compose area and uses the "Attach Files" option that appears.
