OK, I am new here, and have spent some time trawling the forums, but cannot find my answer.......

 

I am running windows 8.1 Pro 64

Installed deskscape 8.1 trial

 

Everything went to plan and everything seems to work perfectly........... except

 

I cannot drag any icons around on my desktop.  A rather large circle with a line through it appears when I try to do so.  It is certainly not a windows icon.  I can open desktop folders and double click applications on my desktop - I just cannot drag them.

 

I have uninstalled, rebooted, refreshed.... every kind of 're' I have tried but still no dragging. 

 

I have locked the taskbar/desktop, arranged icons, aligned icons, shown desktop icons - you name it - I've fiddled with it

 

I saw one suggestion of pausing the scene, but I still cannot drag. 

 

Oh, and if I delete deskscape, I can drag once more!

 

Thus far, apart from this issue it is the best proggy I have found, but It is an essential feature I want.....

 

Any suggestions would be gratefully received

 

Thanks

Does it happen with all of the included dreams or only certain ones?
