No, I do not have such an influence to microsoft, I believe - I wish, I would have.
My intention was (also): to avoid problems - even for users without this knowledge - with a "cut and paste" which is not always a "cut and paste" ...
You say, it's the CUT, ok.
Then, then let me guess: you can't fix the cut, and you can't remove the paste in that List window (unless a directory is "selected"), right?
If you say: WE can't fix it: how other developer have implemented such things (for example in Speed Commander or Total Commander) or even in Freeware. Maybe you could ask somebody or look in the source (if it's not closed source of course) or something like that. I don't know, I'm not a programmer/developer.
It would just great if this bug could be fixed, and it IS a bug, or not?
