Drag & Drop Files & Icons on Desktop

By davidemorehouse ·
What could have happened? After seven years, all of sudden can't move or drag and drop items on desktop, using win 98 sec. ED. I am using a different mouse
I am hard on mice and forced to use this old serial mouse as my U.S.B. mouse gave up the ghost. This is an A4 Tech mouse FC ID:H8GAK77 model No: AK-77 It is my guess if I knew where to go, and what drivers to download would fix problem.?? Dave

Go to i'm quite sure they have the driver for your 'elusive mouse'. Since some mouse require you to first install the driver before it can function, you will need to install it using the run command without that moving mouse pointer of course.

There is another option here but it only applies if you have a lot of items on the Desktop.

If you are constantly dropping items to the Desktop you'll soon fill up the 16 Bit Registers and it's possible that they are full and can not accept any further items on the Desktop.

Question 1: Why do you want to drag and drop items anyway.

Question 2:When was the last time you did any maintenance on your computer.
