    Drag and drop not working properly after Mountain Lion update

    I am not able to use the drag and drop option at all in my Mac after the upgrade which I did to Moutain Lion OS. Any idea what might be the problem behind this? before it was working occasionally but now not working at all. Anyway to fix this problem?

    This problem might be a issue with the System Cache which might need to be refereshed and all you need to do is to boot through the Safe mode once to overcome this problem, just follow the steps given below,

    STEP 1: Shut down you Mac and restart it.
    STEP 2: When you restart press and hold the shift key for a while till when you see the gray Apple logo.
    STEP 3: Releast the shift key by then -> Give in your login information when prompted.
    STEP 4: Again press Shift when you login to the desktop.
    Booting safe mode will be considerably slow when compared to booting it in normal mode so be patient till it’s get done and many of the features like wireless network won’t work in the safe mode. Just try to repeat the same steps which you were doing for drag & drop to check it works fine over here. Then just restart your Mac again to the normal and check the problem which should be fixed by now.

    Friend,

    This is due to system problem you need to be shut down the Mac system.

    :: So first press the power button.

    :: After taking the time your Mac system is now restart.
    :: So log in to it.
    Then check the drag and drop will working or not.
