    Can't drag & drop to anything except another explorer window


    Edit: fixed with an SFC scan.

    [Win10 1909]

    Worked yesterday, went to bed, woke up ... and now I can no longer drag & drop to anything except from explorer to explorer.

    For example, i open chrome and go to Imgur to add a pic. Normally I will drag the file and drop it on the webpage. Now I just get a black circle with a line through it. Same with attempting to drag a pic into Steam chat, something i've done a thousand times.

    I've rebooted. I've tried different browsers. Tried a different mouse.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks, but it seems to be ok now. I ran SFC and it found corrupt system files and said it repaired them. I can now d&d normally again.
