This question already has an answer here:

If i copy a file by dragging and dropping from a folder to the sidebar folder shortcut, I end up with the cursor being an artifact - two cursor icons with the thumbnail of the pic or video I just dragged. (I cannot screenshot it as the cursor does not appear in a screenshot) Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a way I can turn off thumbnail previews whilst dragging? my cursor theme is unchanged - it is still elementary
