Cannot Drag/Drop Icons Or Files On Desktop Or In Windows Explorer

While I was working on a new network of a new company, after installing and configuring all the Server and Client Windows Operating systems, I noticed that there was one system with Windows XP on which I couldn’t drag/drop icons or files on the desktop. It was just like hung. I googled for a solution and thankfully found a solution and everything went alright in one go. Here’s the solution I got:

  1. Create backup of your registry first. [Six Ways To Backup Registry]
  2. Download “dragdropfix.reg” from below.
  3. Double click on the file in Windows to merge it with the registry.
  4. The drag-drop issue should be repaired.
