I completely agree.
Although having to use windows at work for almost two years now, I still don't 
know and don't want to have to learn which modifier I have to press at which 
time (when pressing down, when releasing, all the time ?) in order to move or 
copy a file. There I always use the context menu.
Please don't remove the drop menu and don't make hidden decisions.
