Re: Explorer crashes with enabled preview of PDF-documents

1. Yes. Select the 3 and drag to the new folder.
2. DVLA_19-03-11_p1_of_3.pdf etc.
3. No.
4. Don't know - don't use it if I can avoid it.
Just tried in WE: select all 3, move up a level, move back - no crash. BUT - can't reproduce the crash in XYplorer, so it's intermittent.
