Per my Step By Step SharePoint 2010 book, to move a web part (Announcements Web Part)  to a different place on my share point  page:

Click site actions
Click edit page
Move mouse over title bar of web part (you are moving) until pointer changes to a hand and while holding down mouse button drag the web part to a different spot on your Share Point page and release mouse. A normal drag and drop, right ?

Well, my Announcements Web Part does not move anywhere, just stays in the same spot that Share Point put it when I added it to Share Point page.

Help....

You can only drag it to other web part containers (or a different position in the same container).

Make sure you hover over the web part title, and teh cursor should change to hand, then drag it to another container and that container's border will change colour to identify that you can drop it here.

If your webpart page is based on a template of a single column (i.e. only one container), then you wont be able to move it anywhere if there is a single web part on the page, since it is in the only position it can be in.  In this situation try adding another web part to page, and you will be able to switch their order by dragging and dropping.
