I have the problem that from one day to another the drag & drop function in WinSCP is not working anymore. I didn't change anything in the settings.
When I open the settings in WinSCP and select the "Drag & Drop" menu, it shows me that the shell extension is installed but not running. Yesterday it was installed AND running. But drag & drop is not working, it doesn't matter if the extension is running or not.
I already tried to uninstall the program and reinstall it but this didn´t help. I also tried to uninstall the current version (5.17.10) and install a prior version but this also didn´t help.
I saw that there are already some similar topics in this forum but there was no solution.
I need the program nearly every day because I´m managing a dedicated root server with a few public game servers.
On my computer I have Win 10 x64 and all updates installed.
Does anybody know how I can solve this problem?
Where exactly do you drag the files from and to?
From Windows Explorer to WinSCP? Or the other way? Or within WinSCP (from local panel to remote or that other way)? Does any of these work? Or none?
Did you restart your machine?
I tried to drag & drop files / folders within WinSCP from local panel to remote panel and vice versa. Nothing is working.
I shutdown my computer every day and also restarted it a few times.
Now I tried to drag & drop files from Windows Explorer to the remote panel in WinSCP, this is working. But when I try to drag & drop files from remote panel in WinSCP to Windows Explorer, this is not working.
Maybe there is a keyboard shortcut in WinSCP to deactivate the drag & drop feature and I hit that by mistake?
There's no option to disable drag&drop. Dragging within WinSCP does not involve the drag&drop shell extension. So that's should not be related either. Though in any case, did you try the other option (temporary folder)?
Does the dragging start at all? (= does the mouse cursor change when you start dragging)? Or is it the dropping part that does not work?
No, for me there was no solution.
For me it only worked after I reset my computer and reinstalled it. Since then I didn´t have the problem anymore.
But maybe someone else has a solution for it, then it would be nice if he / she could post the solution here.
