Have you tried the 'send to' option ?

Highlight file(s) to be moved, right click mouse and send to options are shown.

If your external drive not on list do simple search for "Send to" and copy a shortcut of drive into folder.

You could try drag and drop using the right mouse button. This will give you a dropdown list of options from which you can choose "Copy" to copy the file. Other options will allow you to "Move" or "Create a Shortcut".

You've applied the "Green Tick", but what solved your problem? Others, who read this thread, might have the same, or a similar, problem and they could find the solution useful.
