JSI Tip 3064. Some icons become invisible when dragged across the desktop?

When you drag multiple icons across the desktop, some icons may become transparent, but others may become invisible.

If you have Show window contents while dragging enabled, Windows adjusts the transparency level of the multiple icons as a combined object. This can cause some icons to appear invisible.

To prevent the problem, turn off Show window contents while dragging:

1. Control Panel / Display / Effects.

2. Clear the Show window contents while dragging box.

3. Press OK.
