Fixing Annoyances: Stop Windows from Copying Files Accidentally When Ctrl-Click Selecting :: the How-To Geek
[Original draft 5/10/2008. In preparation for my blog redesign, I’ve been going through draft blog posts that somehow never made it to publication. This is one of them.]
2010: Since I implemented this fix, I’ve never had the problem again.
I can stop those accidental copy when I want to cntrl click ! Yayyyyyy !
This machine runs Vista (noooooooooooooo).
I have a rule. Never ever ever ever manually edit the file register. Ever.
But thanks for the link. I have been wondering how to do that for years. I don’t dare try, but at least I know that it can be done.
I just did it. I edited the file registry. Now the only rule I haven’t broken is the rule to never ever try to turn off any Sandy_Bridge processors which might happen to belong to Michael Froomkin using a 3G network.
I will never ever do any such thing. Not even if this computer never works right again because I manually edited the file registry having been lead astray by a post to which this post sent me.
