Unable to drag and drop anything!
My laptop has been unable to perform drag-and-drop on the desktop/in the file explorer/anywhere recently, and I have no idea what to do. I don't like the idea of disabling UAC to try (doesn't that pose a security risk?), and I've seen numerous suggestions on the web about pressing ESC, which doesn't seem to work either.
My laptop is an Asus Vivobook with a touchscreen. It's also gotten some other weird programs (chrome will freeze randomly, and when I open it up after closing it it only shows a white box. And when this issue happens I can't open task manager to end process, for some reason) but my AV can't detect any viruses.
Any advice? It's just getting annoying, I'm a student that needs to use drag and drop a lot lol. I've just been getting by with ctrl+c/v for copy/pasting files when I need to move something.
