Can no longer drag & drop emails to folders

Can no longer drag and drop emails to folders. It only works if that email is not the current one open. So if I have only one email left in my inbox (I like to keep my inbox empty) I can't drag and drop that last remaining email because that one is "open" I have to click on the little circle to the left of the email, then from the drop down folder menu click on the folder I want it to go to. This is more time consuming .This is using google chrome and IE and from other computers as well, both PC and Mac.

    Sometimes I can drop and drag an email to a folder. for a few times, but then something happens and the next time I try to drag....gmail bounces to the top of my folders, where it says Inbox, instead of the folders section staying where it was (I have a lot of folders) and allowing me to drag straight over to the folder I wanted. Something is causing the folders section on the left to move when I drag, and it didn't used to do this. I end up having to close Google and resign in. This is a BIG issue. Why have gmail if we can't manage our email efficiently?

    Gmail in Outlook won't allow me to move folders of email; rather it does it then automatically reverses the change. Help please

    You haven't fixed this problem. Drag and drop does not work and I cannot choose to move to another folder by selecting move from the drop down menu. How can I keep my inbox organised?

    This is not completed. I can't drag and drop any emails in any folders... How do we get this reopened?

    Cant use drag on drop. EVER. Cannot drag file to attach to email unless repeat that dozen times or wait half an hour for Outlook to reallize that it suppose to do something.

    I cannot drag and drop an email from my inbox to the calendar in Office365 Outlook. How can I do that?

    It's such a basic but necessary functionality - and it doesn't work on the Outlook desktop app/software either. Please fix this ASAP Microsoft.

    Goodbye Hotmail ! I have enough confusion in my life, don't need to deal with this mess !

    Every 'up-date' FORCED on we older folk just interferes with something which was simple, clear & manageable! Make haste slowly AND responsibly!
    If Apple can make changes to their OS, using your 'OUTLOOK', WHY cant you?
