Any way to stop click to move?

Gizmo235

I am constantly getting moves I dont want because of the click to move feature, as I will drag a piece somewhere, then change my mind and put it off to the side where it wont move, then click to get rid of the highlight, and end up accidently clicking a square that it can move to.

Is there no way to make it ONLY drag to move?

Unfortunately, no, we don't offer the option to disable click to move. Sorry!

I just checked and it's still saying that "you can always use either method". That means that both work at the same time. I don't understand why there's even an option.

Are you using mobile app or website?

It working for me.if both option is enabled automatically then you can drag your pieces or click squares.i think that is a glitch.for me it works perfectly.

I'm not sure if you understand. The problem is that I do NOT want them both to work at the same time. If you're offered an option to choose one and not the other, you kinda expect that the option you didn't choose will stay disabled.

This is now possible: in your Live Chess settings under "Board" there is "Move Method" - change it from "Drag Pieces" to "Click Squares"

But it still says that you can use both methods in the '?' tool tip. so if you accidentally klick on a square after highlighting a piece it will move.

If that's the case, it sounds like a bug - report it via https://support.chess.com/article/346-contact-us

Losing games frequently because of clicking on the wrong location of my screen, while I always move my pieces with a drag and drop... looking at different posts about this issue, it seems that people are asking for this SUPER SIMPLE fix since 7 years? Why the team of chess.com is not putting priority on this?

But if you pick up the wrong piece in RL, you still have to move it, and if you place it down where it didn't start, you have actually finished a move?

It's clearly not the same thing.
