Sometimes File Explorer encounters issues with dragging and dropping. Fortunately, you can fix this issue by restarting the service. However, doing so isn't as easy as closing all your open File Explorer windows, as the service is always running in the background.

To move, select the folders and files in the source, right-click and select Cut, or press Ctrl + X to cut. If you're moving files, you can also select and drag the files from one File Explorer window to another, rather than using cut and paste.
