When opening several files selected in folder window, "move items" and "copy items" windows pop up RRS feed

  • Question

  • From an explorer folder window when I select multiple files of the same type (e.g., xlsx), click right mouse key, then select open from the context menu rather than have all of the files open automatically I get first a "Move Items" window and second a "Copy Items" window for each file that I selected. I must click on the cancel button of each dialog box.

    I'm not sure what has changed on my system. This method used to open up all the selected files without any intervention from me.

    Any idea what is causing this behavior and how to fix?
