Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Open IE. (If you want, navigate to but that’s not really needed)
Drag a file from the Windows Shell over the IE window (do not release)
Observe: Text says it will be performing a Move.
Expect: Text says it will be performing a Copy.

Expected Results:

Should show the text “Copy” instead of “Move.” (Drag/drop supports this, but requires that the drop target explicitly say it will be doing a Copy rather than a Move.

Actual Results:
