    No drag & drop in windows mail? Is this correct or is something wrong?

    I'm finally setting up my Win 10 updated machine. I was hoping to use Windows 10 Mail, because of its simplicity. However, there are several features missing that I use constantly. Drag & drop attachments is one. Am I correct that this feature is missing in Mail?

    You can drag and drop attachments into your email messages, however this was a feature that was added in a Mail App update. Therefore, I'm wondering whether the Mail App on your PC is still on an older version? Try going to Store > Downloads and Updates and 'Check For Updates' to make sure the Mail App is on the latest version.
