I think I now see what you mean but it's the other way round. If you drag a normal file FROM XYplorer TO an open WinRAR archive window, it prompts you for a file to add even though you are dragging it! The caption of the Window is "Select files to add" - is that what you see?

No, this does not happen here (but I'm using WinRAR 5.01),

I am using PeaZip. When I open a zip archive with PeaZip amd drag it to XYplorer, I get a popup asking me to Browse for a folder, select a directory. It defaults to Desktop. If I just say OK, the file goes to my Desktop, not to the file I selected with XYplorer.
It is not creating a zip archive.

PeaZip, never heard of that. They must do something unusal there. Which exact version and bitness of PeaZip are you using?

False alarm. Sorry for the confusion.
PeaZip was the problem. The messages and behavior was all them.
I just rebuilt my computer and reinstalled everything. I selected PeaZip based on reviews. I never used it before.
I went back to IZArc and everything works like it should.
Thanks again.

How about being more specific?

What does not work, dragging a file from XYplorer into Bandizip that has e.g. a .zip file open?
XYplorer version
Bandizip version

XY v18.20.0102 with Bandizip 6.06 and dragging an item from XY into Bandizip with an open
.zip file pops up a dialog, asking me, what I want to do and adding that item works fine...

Xyplorer 18.20.0100


Opening a compressed file with Bandizip ---> dragging folders/files from that opened Bandizip window into a Xyplorer folder ---> most of the times it works, other times the files won't get uncompressed. However if I try dragging again the files get decompressed.

Nevermind, I'm trying to reproduce the issue but now the files get decompressed at every attempt :ugeek:
Probably the last 2 or 3 Bandizip updates fixed it. Additionally, my Windows 10 got updated from ver. 1607 to 1703 last night.

I am sorry to revive this "old" thread, but I figured the somewhat minor problem I'm experiencing would not warrant it's own thread.

I'm using WinRAR 5.61 64bit, together with XYplorer 19.20 and Win10 64bit.
The drag'n'drop behaviour I'm getting is this:
1- drag a file onto a zip/rar file: file is correctly packed inside archive (I remember this wasn't working a while back, but it seems fine now... thanks!)
2- drag a file onto a open WinRAR window: file is not directly packed inside archive and, instead, WinRAR asks for files to add.

I guess what happens in (2) is not to be expected. Indeed, I tested the 32bit version of WinRAR and everything works just fine.
Should I just switch to the 32bit version of WinRAR or is there something I can do to circumvent this issue? (I already tried disabling/enabling the "Use standard shell drag and drop" setting, but didn't find any changes...)

Your best option...

Not the answer I was hoping for :), but thanks!
I'll try what you suggest, as the potential downsides seem to be minor when compared to the advantages of unrestricted usage of XYplorer in this kind of scenario.
