    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

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/reset-ie-settings#ie=ie-11

    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.

    Unable to open Settings and Magnifier.

    Hi Hans,



    Did you made any changes to the system prior to the issue?

    What exactly are you referring to ''the title appears on the bottom bar but will not open''?



    Did you check for any pending updates? If not, follow the below steps to update the Windows.


    • Press Windows key+ I to open the
      Settings.

    • Click on Update & security, then click on
      Windows Update.

    • Select Check for updates. If Windows Update says that your PC is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available.

    This issue may occur due to corrupt or missing Windows files.

    You can also go to the Settings by pressing the windows
    key+ R. You may try to open the Settings with this shortcut and see if the options can be seen.



    If the above suggestions doesn’t help, you may run the
    system maintenance troubleshooter and check if the issue still persist.

    Follow the below steps to run the system maintenance troubleshooter.




    • Type troubleshooter in the search box on the task bar and then press
      Enter.

    • Select Troubleshooting from the list.

    • Click on view all in the left pan and select
      System maintenance troubleshooter.

    • Click next and follow the on-screen instructions.


    Hope you can open the Settings.

    Let us know if you need further assistance, we will be glad to help you.
