    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:

    • 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.
