    Windows 10 - Drag & Drop File into a Zip File Not Working - July 2019

    Hi,

    On my Windows 10 machine under File Explorer I can no longer drag and drop a file into a pre-created zip file. Usually I can just drag a file and over a zip file just drop it, but it wont even highlight the zip file.

    Any ideas why?

    Unable to Drag-And-Drop in Explorer


    I find I'm unable to drag an drop in Explorer.

    For instance, when I want to extract a file from a zip file I drag to the folder and drop it but it doesn't get placed in the folder. This occurs with any drag and drop procedure.

    I am however able to copy and paste.
