Windows Explorer Addres Bar Too Quick Reacting

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Martin Harran, Jun 6, 2007.

  1. More of an irritation than a peoblem.

    I have a number of PC's connected to my own PC using VPN's over which I have
    to copy files.

    For handiness, I use Windows Explorer with address in format \
    \Server\Dir$\SubDir and just drag the files onto it.

    When I go to change the address, e.g to \ \Server2\Dir$\SubDir unless I type
    very quickly, the address changes to the last few letters I typed and opens
    up Internet Explorer to try to find that shortened address..

    Is there any way I can slow down the Address Bar reacting to a change in the
    address, ideally not having it react at all until I hit Enter key?

    Just wait until Microsoft releases a speed patch. :)
