Does anyone know how to slow down, turn off, or find files that were accidently moved with the click/drag/drop feature of Windows Explorer?

I use Explorer to manage the files on my computer but every now & then my hand will twitch and I accidently move a folder. Half the time I don’t even know what folder I moved let alone where I moved it to. It sure would be great if there was a back feature like there is in word or Excel.

Thanks
Ken

Maybe hit 'Control z' or simply 'undo' on the same drop down edit menu that you'd use to cut, copy and paste.

Go under the windows Control Panel, to the mouse icon and/or the accessibilty icon. Depending on what kind of mouse you have, you can slow the tracking speed or clicking speed down, change from single click to double click etc. so the errors are less. Different mouse drivers have additional/less features. Hope this helps.

Excellent suggestions!

Roger: You were right on the money with the drop down menu; now I can undue the mistake.

Glenn: I slowed the pointer speed so now if I accidently click on a folder I won’t fling it into another one. I’ll need to play with the mouse settings to see if anything else helps.

Luther: An apple huh? I think therapy can help you with that. Maybe there’s a 12 step program.

Thanks guys.

IIf I recall correctly, Logitech or a gaming mouse had more options you could change. Note, you can also adjust the cursor speed and shape. Glad it helped.
