Cannot Right-Click to Move a Website Shortcut


This is the strangest problem I've encountered.

I am accustomed to right-clicking on an icon, dragging it to a different folder, releasing the right mouse button and choosing either Copy, Move or Create a shortcut.

Beginning a few weeks ago, I lost the ability to do this with website shortcuts (i.e., shortcuts that point to a website.) Here's what happens:

I right-click on a website shortcut, drag it to a different folder, and when the shortcut is in the new folder it vanishes.

I only have this problem with website shortcuts. My default browser is Chrome, so the website shortcuts are created by Chrome.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? How can I regain my ability to drag and drop website shortcuts via right-click?
