    I just upgraded to a new PC running Windows 10, and I am having a problem with MEW. Specifically, I cannot drag files from File Manager into MEW or open files from File Manager using “Open With…” from the context menu. I am able to drop files from File Manager into every other application I was able to drop them into in Windows 7, and the same for “Open With…”, so this appears to be an issue specific to MEW.

    Interestingly, I am able to open files with no problem using the MEW File | Open… dialog, or drag and drop from the GUI of my source control system – the only thing that doesn’t work is drag and drop from File Manager.

    Is this a known bug, and if so, is there a fix or workaround?



    FWIW, it works perfectly for me in Windows 10 Pro.
