  • Hi Junebug436,

    First, we could try boot in Clean Boot to avoid the effects of third party software.

    Then please test if the issue occurs in Notepad. If the issue occurs in Notepad and other applications, or cannot copy or paste files and folders either, please try the suggestions below to check this issue.

    When did the issue first occur? If the issue first occurred recently, please check if the issue can be resolved by System Restore.

    If the issue persists, we could try use the command “sfc /scannow” to repair the system files.

    Meanwhile please refer to the link below about cannot Drag or Copy and Paste File.

    Hope it will be helpful to you
