I am seeing a strange issue with my Windows 7 PC. I am trying to drag and drop items (files, folders, shortcuts, emails in outlook 2013) into folders or just around the desktop. When I attempt to do so, the 'drop-shadow' (transparent image of what I am dragging that follows the mouse) remains where I un-clicked the left mouse button, and the file is not moved into the folder.
Here is a picture. Note that my mouse is currently not pressed down anywhere. This problem is apparent in folders, my desktop, and outlook.
Moving into a folder:
Moving around on desktop:
I have tried with both another mouse and the laptops trackpad. Same issue. My ESC button is not stuck down. I have tried right-click holding the file and pressing esc, and esc then ctrl. I have tried restarting. I have tried exiting every program I can think of on my PC. None of the above have worked.
Any other thoughts?
