    in the meantime try creating a new folder on the desktop and drag and drop files into it if you need to have them on the desktop
    I solved the problem. I am using fences..I upgraded fences and now drag and drop works on my desktop. I want to thank you for all you did
    great that you got it fixed ,i kind of figured it must have been caused by 3rd party software
