This question already has an answer here:
I recently upgraded to 17.10 from 16.10, and I'm experiencing an annoying problem:
I CAN'T drag and drop files. When I select files and then hold to drag, it behaves as though I'm re-selecting and doesn't drag the files like it did in 16.10.
Also, ctrl- and shift- selecting no longer work the way they used to, shift now selects from the FIRST file selected rather than the LAST file I selected.
I don't know if these are OS bugs or if there's an easy solution.
PLEASE HELP. I don't want to have to re-install 16.10
