A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.
Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.
Dropping files on FileBoss is comfortably similar to dropping files on other programs such as Windows Explorer with the following great improvements:
as the default operation when files are dropped on FileBoss. The default operation is easily switched between Copy, Move and Create Shortcuts by simply clicking on the Command button (
) or selecting the
Edit > Default Drop Mode > command from the main menu.
(Naturally you can still force the drop mode when dragging files by holding down the Alt, Ctrl or Shift key as appropriate.)
produces a popup menu from which you can select how to Drop, Copy, Move or Create Shortcut(s).
(i.e. releasing the mouse button) press and hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys. This will force FileBoss (and most other programs) to create shortcuts to the source files rather than copy or move them.
If you will be creating shortcuts to more than just a couple of files consider using one or more Drop Targets set to create shortcuts in their associated folders.
