    Suddenly I can no longer highlight, drag curser with mouse. I'm using an Asus 52F laptop with Windows 10, and Office. I also use Chrome but the same happens Microsoft Edge, etc. If I hold the shift key down and try to drag I can highlight a letter or word or two. Not working correctly. Is there a remedy?

    Do not have another mouse to try. Very strange that I can no longer drag and highlight.

    You need to troubleshoot so borrow a mouse from a friend.
