Office Outlook 2013 - Can not drag and drop

Hi All,

i have an Office Outlook 2013 installed on my laptop. When I read my email and I am done with it I drag and drop it to my folders on the left hand side where my inbox, sent , delete etc folder are.
Now, I am not able to drag and drop them. it looks strange that i cannot click on the left side of the email message and move them to the appropriate folders.

Do you know why this happens? it is a bug? and if so, there is any fix for it?

Try an Office Repair from Control Panel, Programs and Features. Click on Office and select Repair.

If this does not work, make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account, set up Outlook and test.

Any results?

While Outlook is your active window, hit "Esc" key several times, and drag-and-drop should come back. It worked for me when I experienced the same problem.
