Drag and Drop No Longer Working

Post by Chris » Wed Nov 10, 2021 9:35 pm

The drag and drop feature [drag a program onto the group list to auto create button] doesn't seem to be working no more, not sure when it stopped.

When I try it just shows a red circle with a line inside it, telling me its not able to drop there.

Type It In Version = Enterprise V3.6

OS = Windows 11 Pro [Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000]

To enable Typeitin to type in all other programs it runs at an elevated level compared to a regular Windows user.

For security reasons Windows does not allow interaction between a user level program like Windows Explorer and an elevated program like Typeitin.

If you install Typeitin in a folder other than \program files(x86) it will no longer run elevated. (For example \programs\typeitin folder)

Drag and Drop will work, but typing into a program running as Administrator will no longer work.

You can then drag files or folders onto the Group List and links from a browser onto a button.
