    how do if fix a grabby mouse that won't drop a window?

    I need some help.

    If i use the mouse to move a window position by placing the pointer on the window, hold the mouse button, then relocate the window, and let up on the mouse, THE WINDOW STILL MOVES WITH THE POINTER even if I'm not holding the button!!!!!....unless I click again to 'drop' the window.....

    Anyone know if there is a 'toggle' for this?...I would greatly appreciate it.

    If that doesn't work, you may have a stuck key on the keyboard, or the Left mouse button sticks.
    Turn the keyboard over and shake it and blow out the keys with a can of compressed air to remove any crumbs or dust. Try a different mouse.
