Windows 10: Drag & Drop not working on a new install of Win 10
Have you tried creating a new user admin account, there are lots of people have similar problems fixed with a new user account.
I am having a similar problem. Currently Im unable to click and drag items into Notepad to open appropriate files like I could in all previous Windows versions. This is a newly built computer with a fresh Windows 10 install, not an upgrade. I tried the Shexview with no success. Is there a process to it? Disable, close everything, restart? I have 2 other problems that I tried to fix by creating a new user. I was able to create a new user with Administrative rights up until 2 days later when I tried to log in and it reverted me back to my original profile with no trace of the new one. Now when I try to create a new user, it demands a proper email address. I do not want to create a-WHOLE-nother profile (Xbox, microsoft, etc.) just so I can try and get a couple of features to work the way they should be. Either way, the whole, New profile thing only resolved the username problem, bt not the drag and drop issue.
Microsoft seems to have no fear in demonstrating how they were able to afford the free upgrades by using such ignorant, if not lazy, tech support.
Has anyone found any solution to this drag-n-drop issue?
The other two problems I had were as follows
1. Username - When navigating File Explorer by my compiuter and trying to navigate by LAN, "Varxtis Foh" just shows up as "Varx"
2. Search - Search query does not search "contains"
Example: search "Tea"
Search results only pulls up result starting with Tea
Will not search "MyTEAparty"
Right- click on the icon, hold, press escape key while holding right click. Try it now
Unbelievable, but this worked. Thank you very much!

No clue, but it did.
Long thread here on the problem and lots of fixes, but the Esc key trick seems to be the best.
Dragging icons/files stops working on desktop and in explorer

Hi, a botched Win7 update on windowsupdate forced me to reinstall Windows, so I went Win10 10130.
Got most of the stuff working the way I want by googling and the help of way cleverer People than I.

I have been using VMware Workstation with various OS's for a while and think it's great. However with my Windows 10 x64 TP guest, even though I installed VM tools - it's almost like VM tools isn't running. I can't drag and drop files from host to VM...
One of the things I use a lot with Internet Explorer is dragging a shortcut from the address bar to the Desktop (actually shift-dragging, or it makes a silly .website shortcut).
How can I do this in Edge?
