I need help with a couple of things in Premiere Pro. I downloaded the latest version just a couple of weeks ago and 2 things aren't working as they did in previous versions.

I'm running a Lenovo P50, 32GB RAM, Windows 10 x64, Nvidia M1000M.

This is my current version:

  1. The first thing wrong is that I can't drag and drop files or folders from Windows file explorer to Premiere Pro, I used to be able to do this without a problem. I've tried dragging to Project panel and to timeline, neither work.
  2. Second thing is that on a split screen setup, I used to be able to press Ctrl + Shift + \ to make the second screen full screen.

By default the main screen has the minimise, maximise and close buttons:

However if you drag a window out, you don't get this functionality. Someone tipped me off a while back that Ctrl + Shift + \ would make it full screen but it's not working on this version.

If anyone can help with a fix that would be really appreciated. I can still import footage through the menus but it feels a little clunky.

  • Hi, I think you currently have two questions. Could you perhaps pose them as two separate questions and include what you've looked into already? E.g. did you do a web search on the drag and drop issue already? Or did you look in the keyboard shortcut definitions of PPro for your second issue? – Saaru Lindestøkke Nov 11 '20 at 14:19
