Recently on my work pc drag and drop functionality just stopped in Microsoft Outlook 2010. It worked on the desktop just it stopped in that application.
I tried quitting outlook, this didn't help. Someone suggested "just reboot the PC", well is this was going to be an issue as I don't want to have to reboot the PC each time. I was searching around and of lot OS people said it happens and they just reboot. However there was one solution that sounded a lot easier when this occurs, and that is to press the escape key.
This solved it, so if you do find that drag and drop operation just stop working press escape and then try again, very simple and saves lots of time having to reboot.
