Drag and Drop not working in Windows

Here is a quick guide on how to get your drag and drop to work again.  I am not sure why but my PC from time to time will forget how to drag and drop.

Steps to get drag and drop working

  1. Click on a file
  2. Press Esc key
  3. Drag your file to your new location

Yes… it is that easy! I don’t really know why it happens.  But that always fixes it for me whenever it occurs.  I have tested this in Windows 7.  I have not seen it happen in Windows 8.1.

If anyone knows why this occurs and a permanent solution, I would be really interested in hearing about it.
