Cannot Drag down cells even though its turned on in Advanced options

Copper Contributor

I'm an experienced user and I'm used to be able to solve issues on my own, but this one has stumped me. I would appreciate any help and suggestions.


While was working in a Excel spreadsheet I can suddenly no longer can drag down cells. The cursor simply never turns into the plus sign. 


I have triple checked the Options-Advanced-Drag down cells, it's not the issue. Also tried to reset it back and forth, not working.

This no longer works in any workbook. Also restarting my computer didn't work.
I have also turned off all COM addins to check for conflicting issues.

Okay I found the solution, from another post on here. The problem is the docking station causes a graphical bug with the mouse cursor. I plugged it in and out and it started working correctly.

This is quite bizarre since even though my keyboard is connected to the docking station my mouse is a bluetooth mouse.

@PontusLindholm2010thank you for posting your solution, was pulling my hair out for the longest time before I found your post.
