Build 765 - Selection by Mouse dragging Issue

#1 Post by braveregan » 20.12.2017, 21:36

Build 765 - Selection by Mouse dragging Issue
when freecommander at maximize window, selection by dragging is fine.

at other window size, click and hold left button to drag the cursor, the cursor jump to the bottom right corner of screen (near the time and date).

to replicate, open the freecommander, change the window size to any size, but make sure not at maximized. click any where in the left or right panel, hold the left mouse button and drag, the cursor will disappear from the freecommander window and jump to the bottom right corner of the screen.

That looks like a Microsoft bug which is reported also by users of other programs like Speed Commander or 7zip.

Yes, horst.epp is correct, The 7-zip has the same issue, it is not the bug of freecommander.

does anyone knows how to fix it? Thanks.

The author of the Tablacus file manager has developed a fix which seems to help.

Thanks a lot, the program from the link above fix the issue very well, the only problem is to run this program every time. Of course you can set up auto run with windows start. Thanks a lot. Hope windows can fix it in the future update release.

I've experienced this bug as well since my OS got updated. As we all know, it is a Microsoft Bug.

I didn't implement the solution above.
What I have experienced is, once I am able to get a list of files selected with the mouse, then the bug "magically" disappears. I have to place the mouse cursor very near the last file shown and then I can select by dragging the mouse.

I created also a GIF to show the problem:

Any "official" answer from the FreeCommander developer??

So far, Microsoft has not donated anything for my project :).
You can try this solution or you can simply use the solution that FreeCommander offers:
- Go to Settings->Select items -> General
- Set the option "By click on extension or free space in label" to "Select item (important if you want selection by mouse dragging)"
- save the settings
Now you can simply click in the free space (or on extension) of one item and drag the mouse .
