    Drag and Drop not working

    Last night as I was moving a file in Windows Explorer, I discovered Windows wouldn't let me drag and drop the file to a folder. I've had problems with drag and drop not working in Outlook 2007, but this is the first time in Windows Explorer. How can I fix this?

    I am runnning Vista Home Premium SP1 32bit and I am the sole user.

    Try check your Esc key.... Do this physically by pressing it several times. then try Drag and Drop function. It works for me.

    Hello p2471c and welcome to the forums

    Thanks for sharing your solution! I'm sure others will appreciate your efforts. Although this thread was from 08-28-2008, so hopefully it's been solved

    Hopefully, everybody is using SP2 since SP2 wasn't available when this thread was opened.
