    Hi everybody

    I´m a designer and I need a very simple feature browsers have ... drag and
    drop.
    Usually, when I need to edit an image I find on a website, I just drag that
    image out of IE, and drop into Photoshop.
    Well, now I can´t do that. I don´t know what happened, but IE won´t let me
    drap images out.
    The other way is to right click over it, and SAVE IT AS .. but then IE makes
    a conversion of the file .. and I need the Original file ..

    Anyone can help??

    And while you are at it .. maybe you can tell me how to reinstall IE
    alltogether .. it has been behaving really buggy lately

    thanks

    First of all, you don't have to right click/save as; you
    can right click/copy. Go to your graphics package
    and paste the image (it doesn't get converted).

    Second, you didn't mention operating system, but if
    you have Windows 98, you can use the following to
    fix drag and drop.

    Copy/paste the following into Notepad and save it
    as "fixcopypaste.reg", without the quotes. Double
    click the saved .reg file to merge it into your registry.
    BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!

    Note: Everything between [ and ] MUST be one line
    only, and there must be a blank line at the end.

    No, DON'T use it for XP. Are you all patched up
    and virus free? The Blaster worm was/is known
    to mess up drag and drop.
