    Solved, solution at post #7

    I have my download folder on the dock set to fan view but I can't drag and drop the files to the trashcan that I want to delete.
    I need to open the download folder and drag and drop from there.

    How do one change the options in order to be able to drag and drop from the fan view? (it worked before but something changed don't know what..) :confused:

    version 10.8.2

    No one knows what options I need to check?

    Can't drag and drop files from the download folder (fan view) to the trash bin.
    Need to open up the download folder, move them to the trash bin manually (here they are deleted at once) but I need to type in my password every time I want to delete anything..

    Just want to be able to move the downloaded files to the trash bin and then select the trash bin in order to delete all files stored there.

    So, when you try to delete something, it asks for your password? That's not usual for the Downloads folder.

    Have you moved the Downloads folder, or done any other modifications to folders -- e.g. moved the User account?

    No I haven't moved the downloads folder or any modifications I can think of.

    Solved it now. :)

    It seems the settings was changed when I updated Os X..

    But here is the solution anyway.
