    unable to drag and drop files into website on Internet Explorer 11

    Hi Cristy,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you are unable to drag and drop files into website on Internet Explorer 11.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Incorrect Internet Explorer settings.

    • Some browser add-ons.
    Try the steps listed here:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to disable add-ons and check if it helps.

    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to reset Internet Explorer settings and check if it helps.

    Change or reset Internet Explorer settings

    Disclaimer: Reset Internet Explorer to its default configuration. This step will also disable any add-ons, plug-ins, or toolbars that are installed. Although this solution is quick, it also means that, if you want to use any of those add-ons
    in the future, they must be reinstalled.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    1. Open the Task Manager.

    2. Go to startup tab.
