Works for me.

Does this happen on every website or just certain ones? Are you able to drag and drop the image onto the tab bar? Do you see the image when you are dragging it?

I ask because website developers can stop you from dragging and dropping images if they want to. So if the issue is website-specific, that could be what has happened.

Does this test page work properly for you?

hi, please try resetting the windows user account control settings to their default and restart the system once to see if this helps with the drag and drop issue: https://support.microsoft.com/help/975787/
