Is there any way to prevent accidental drag & drop in Thunar?

Hi! The accident happens all the time, especially with the detailed list view mode. I just drag my mouse to select something, but it always moves something into a folder. And sometimes it’s hard to find the missing things back, since thunar has no undo functionality. Is there any way to completely disable drag and drop in thunar? I think ctrl+c and ctrl+v or menu commands are much better than drag and drop. Or is it possible that popup a confirmation prompt when drag and drop happening?
Thanks!

Hello, and welcome to the forum.

In the Mouse and Touchpad settings app (xfce4-mouse-settings), try increasing the drag and drop threshold in the Behavior tab:

Please tell us how it goes, good luck!

Thanks for your reply. I have tried that, and it is useful. But the max threshold 50px is not enough for me. Can I set higher value? Sometimes I use thunar in openbox instead of xfce4. But this setting dose not work in openbox. Is it possible to make this setting work in openbox?
