Windows 7: Drag and Drop not working

Resolved for me

I had the same thing happen to one of our workstations. Suddenly I was not able to drop pdf, jpg, docx or any other file into a program I used to be able to. Found a simple fix from another forum (sorry forgot the genius' name, but all kudos to him.)

Right click your mouse button, and while holding it down, press your ESC key.

All fixed!

Hope the helps someone.
