I can't drag-and-drop using Notepad++ v6.8.8 #1431

Seens that I can’t drad-and-drop anymore using Notepad++ v6.8.8.

The drop was made on the right side of the last open tab. I tried a file from a simple path (C:\HaxLogs.txt) and other from a more complex one. None opened the file.

Here goes the debug info:

Notepad++ v6.8.8
Build time : Dec 10 2015 - 01:11:37
Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : ON
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 10
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll NppFTP.dll PluginManager.dll

Thank you,

After reading some topics on npp forum, I've set the compatibility mode of notepad++.exe to Windows 7 and the drag-and-drop feature started to work again. Thanks!
