I can not drag and drop any of the folders or files from my desktop to any applications like WhatsApp or Viber and this problem is only since when I started using Windows 11. I have also tried reinstalling these apps but that didn't help.

@Shreyansh15, I am experiencing the same.  

@rikponne I'm having the same type of problem when trying to drag and drop files in Windows 11. When trying to drag a file (any type) from the desktop to Windows File Explorer (or any other location) the process can be very painful, and normally requires multiple attempts. When drgging to Windows File Explorer, it is difficult to drop files in the right folder. This isn't a hardware problem (such as Mouse control). It started with my recent install of Win 11. I regret installing Win 11!
