This does not directly answer your question, but I don't know of a place
where this behaviour could be changed. It's worth altering the habits in-
Windows is taking a risky approach by doing what it does. Moving involves
/deleting/ in the sense that relocation leaves a locational 'void'. Win-
dows does not always move objects. Under certain circumstances it just
creates shortcuts, assuming it is the more sensible action to take.
The dangerous thing is that Windows leaves users in the dark, not actually
informing him/her what is happening unless careful attention is paid to
the existence of icons (or small pointers next to the icons).
I admire Konqueror for taking the approach which drag-and-drop in Windows,
with the right-hand-side button (right-handed mouse assumed) takes. Much
safer, less user-friendly (confusing), but more reliable to the user
nonetheless. Loss of files can be disastrous.
