    Drag and drop stops working at random

    Drag and drop functionality stops working at random. Sometimes it works for a whole day, sometimes it stops working after an hour of PC usage. I can't drag any file in explorer, nor in my desktop. And drag and drop functionality stops working in some apps
    as well (including Photoshop and Illustrator, which is a killer since I work as a designer).

    So far I haven't found any other solution than a full restart.

    I have tried the following:

    1. Restarting, killing the explorer.exe process
    2. Disabling any process/service that might have something to do with it
    3. pressing the ESC key (I found this solution online, it worked for many)
    4. killing the Synergy process (worked for many as well, but I don't have Synergy even installed)
    5. Editing the EnableLUA registry (worked for many as well)
    It is really time-consuming when I have to restart the machine, with many huge work-in-progress documents, Chrome tabs and programs opened.

    Do anyone know what the issue might be?

    Thank you very much.

    Windows 10 Drag and Drop Stopped working

    Drag and dropped stopped working when within an application and dragging out of an application to another. It still works when dragging into and application from MS Explorer.

    The only error message I have seen is with Office 2013. When I try and drag and drop and email to another folder I get the message "Cannot find this file. Verify the path and file name are correct".

    This happens with all applications.

    Has anyone else seen this problem in Windows 10 Pro Build 10586?
