cannot copy files from a drag operation - can only move

Since nobody else is reporting this, I think this must be due to something I am doing wrong, but I cannot figure it out! I can't find a configuration combination that will allow me to copy again (from a dragging operation).

I am using 3.7.1 (build 257) of WinSCP and When I drag a remote file to my desktop (or to any folder on my local computer) I am prompted to Move the file or Cancel. I used to be offered the opportunity to Copy the file (leave it on the remote server and copy it to my local computer).

I am using the Explorer interface (but I was before, too). Here is a snippet from my log.

Re: cannot copy files from a drag operation - can only move

Disabling "Allow moving from remote directory to other applications"? may help you. There are several topics on the forum that explain the problem in more details.

Since 5.14, it is always possible to use drag&drop to move remote files to external applications, while copy is always the default operation.
