When I drag and drop file to PC, goes to another folder

When I drag and drop a file from my webserver, the file goes to a diferent folder than what a I dropped. (Desktop, for example) and all the files that I want to drag and drop, goes to that "default" folder. I didn't change any setting or anything. I think that this bug appears after updating Windows 10 to its last version 1803.

WinSCP: 5.13.1 (Comp 8265)
Interface: Explorer
My PC: Windows 10 64x, version 1803
Webserver: Ubuntu Server
Connection: SFTP / port 22

I forgot to mention that when I drag and drop the files, they also gets "cut" from the remote server. The files disappeared from the origin folder, and then goes to the destiny pc's Desktop

I have released WinSCP 5.13.2 with a workaround for a problem you have reported.
Can you please test it?
I appreciate any feedback.

Hi Martin.

The file transfer to the destination folder works perfect!
Now the only problem that persist is that the file gets "cut" from the origin folder.
It means that it's not a copy -> transfer of the file, but a transfer to destination -> delete from origin thing

Regarding the move: Are you sure this is a new problem? Didn't you have this problem before?
Would this FAQ help?

Thanks for your help Martin. It was the option "Allow moving from remote directory to other applications". It was selected.
I ticked this option trying to resolve the problem of the wrong directory transfer.
Now is copying fine after I take this tick off
