  2. Cannot Drag and Drop into Edge

    • I have been on Win 10 and Edge since June 2016.
    • I was able to drag and drop files in a SP2013 document library until today.
    • I tried it with OneDrive with the same result. I can no longer drag and drop to upload files.

    Repeat: Drag and drop worked in my SharePoint 2013 libraries and OneDrive until today.

    Was there a recent Win 10 or Edge update that may have broken drag and drop?

    Drag and drop not working???

    When I connect my Moto Q9c (Win mobile 6.1) to my computer (XP sp3) via Active Sync 4.5, I can no longer drag and drop files from Explore. When I try, the cursor changes to a circle with a line through it. I'm positive I've "dragged and dropped" before.
    Is there a setting I could have changed and not realized it? Syncing still works, but not drag and drop.

  4. Explorer Drag and Drop 'Move' - Not Working - Win 10

    Drag and drop between text fields not working on IE 11, Win 10

    No, that doesn't answer the question, either.

    I didn't ask how to program a web page. I asked why IE 11 on Win 10, and specifically IE 11 on Win 10, doesn't seem to be able to do what Edge can do...and Chrome and Firefox and even IE 11 on Win 7: The ability to drag text and drop it into a form field.
    Every browser can do this. Even Internet Explorer 11 on Win 7 can do this. It is only IE 11 on Win 10 that has this problem.

    And yet, here you are claiming that it only works on IE 9 and earlier. That is simply not true. Once again, I gave explicit instructions on how to replicate the issue. Did you bother to pay attention to them and try?
    This makes twice you've not read the post but decided to answer a completely unrelated question. Thank you for restoring the headline of my post, but you're still not paying attention.

    For the third time:

    • Go to a page in Internet Explore 11 on Windows 10 that has a form in it with two fields.
    • Enter some text in the first field.
    • Select the text.
    • Try to drag and drop it into the second field.
    You'll find that you can't. Note, you don't even need to have two fields. Just have some plain text on the page, select it, and then try to drag it into one of the text fields. You'll find that you can't.

    Now, try this in Chrome: It works. Try this in Firefox: It works. Try this in Edge on Win 10: It works. Try this in IE 11 on Win 7: It works. On top of that, if the page is long, you can drag the item down and the page will scroll so that you can
    get to lower parts of the page to drop it where you want, but not on Internet Explore 11 on Windows 10.

    The only browser this doesn't work in is Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10. Is this expected behaviour? Is there no ability to drag and drop items in IE 11 on Win 10? If so, that's a major bug.

    Now, will you stop trying to answer something I'm not talking about and pay attention? Again, if I seem snippy and if you feel like you are being treated like a child, it is because of the unprofessionalism you are showing.
