Moving items on playlist issue under windows 10

Hi Guys.

I have come across a couple of strange issue with foobar recently. I am after a fresh install of Windows 10. And I have just installed latest foobar - version 1.4.2 and the installation went fine. However I have these issues:

- I can't move items on the playlist - when I add songs to the playlist and then I try to select and drag them up or down - nothing happens - they are only highlighted but I can't move them.
- I can't drag and drop items from the media library - whether this is an album folder or a single song. For instance: I open + sign next to the album and then try to drag the song into the playlist and nothing happens.
- Also previously on Windows 7 - I could convert a file and then drag the file from the window which displayed the converted file - now nothing.
- I noticed some duplicate items - I add the album to the playlist and there are doubled songs - but when I try to open the source folder of the doubled item the option is greyed out.

I tried to also install the version I used on windows 7 machine - 1.3.3 - same effect.
I tried to install portable version - also no change with regards to moving items on playlist.
I tried to open foobar in compatibility mode for Windows 7 or even Windows XP - nothing changed

And finally, which is really weird, today I installed foobar 1.4.2 on my company laptop with Windows 10 and the first point of the list works like a charm - so I really do not get it. My company laptop seems to have more restrictions then my personal computer.

I would appreciate any hint as to how to solve this.

Thank you.

It's a bug with Windows and foobar2000, when using a desktop scale other than 100%. Or possibly multiples of 100%. I can't say I've experienced it with 200%, though.

Thank you for the answer. Unfortunately, it is a Windows 10 bug. I figured it out that (for me at least) it is connected with the feature update that changed the release version of my Windows from 1803 to 1809 - when I went back to 1803 version everything started to work. So for now I am safe.

Most importantly, on this 1809 version, I could not move (drag) items on playlist also on Spotify app or Aimp. So once again Windows made it worse.

Ugh, thanks for that hint. What a nasty thing... for me, dropped playlist items were always dropping the bottom of the list, possibly being duplicated in the process. So for now, the work around seems to be: "reorder the playlist only on a screen with desktop scale set  to 100%".
