Cannot drag mouse over text to copy & paste
I used to be able to drag the mouse over text to copy and paste (on Internet or in Word). It no longer will do this unless I hold a button down on the keyboard while dragging. It's a microsoft mouse connected to the computer with a PS/2 connection. Any idea what's wrong?
