I can't drag files with the mouse

Just installed Mountain Lion. After about four days I can't drag files with the mouse. Not across the desktop or from Finder window to Finder window.

I have the same problem, I have posted the below here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4152036?start=0&tstart=0
I have exactly the same problem on Mountain Lion- I go to drag files from the finder to another finder folder or the desktop and when I go to release the mouse button the file stays in a "hover" state, as if I hadn't released the mouse. It then follows my mouse cursor around forever. Very frustrating.
I have rebooted several times - any ideas?

  • Can't drag files into the queue window on some computers

    For some reason, on my new desktop and my laptop. I cannot drag files into the Queue window in Media encoder. I  have tried dragging avi's, wav, and mp4. As the files I am dragging hover over the queue window, my mouse turns into the "circle with a line through it" pointer and I cannot add the files that way. I can click the plus sign and then browse to its location to add. I just want to have my drag n drop feature working again... Any ideas why i can on some computers and not others?
    I did try running media encoder as administrator. All my computers are running windows 8.1.

  • With streaming music files I used to be able to hover over the file with the mouse and see a "Download" option. However, after a recent uninstall and reinstall of FireFox, I no longer see this option. Please help!

    Even with files I used to be able to see the download option with (Quicktime files) I do not see the option when I hover over it with the mouse.

    Which add-ons do you have that say "incompatible with Firefox 5.0"?
    Maybe something like download helper? You need to find an update for that add-on.

  • Spotlight does not show the path or location of a file anymore when hovering with the mouse over the file

    in Leopard Spotlight used to show you the path /location  of a file when you stayed with the mouse over the result. As sometimes I just look for the location of a file not to open it like a mp3 file. It would be nice to have a opiton in spotlight to contorl or right click a file and then give the option to say show in finder. that only works when you have your results show up in finder first and takes a bit longer. or maybe in the new prieview window to show the loaation or give you opitons what to do with the file
    Just an idea to spotlight even better

    When you hover over a file in spotlight list (or select with up/down arrow) you can also hit command-R to open the folder where the file is located. Kind of like 'Show Original' for aliases.
    But yeah, Apple really needs to just show the directory path on the hover pop-up by default. Obviously, when you do a search you'll most likely get several files with the same name - we need to see the locations to tell them apart. One of the main reasons to do a file search is to simply find out 'where the file is located' - not necessarily open the file. Seems pretty shortsighted to not show the file location in the search result.

  • HT1338 When I connect my Macbook Pro to my Dell DLP projector, either via cable or wirelessly, I just see a dark screen with the mouse and mouse trails only, can any one help?

    When I connect my Macbook Pro to my Dell DLP projector, either via cable or wirelessly, I just see a dark screen with the mouse and mouse trails only, can any one help?

    jpmarkques post is a good start point, after folling his directions, you can try detect displays. Also try different rsolution and refresh rates.
    Most of the projectors I have used support a 1024X768 res.
    Youcan also try a pram reset if it still does not detect.
    Leave theproctor connected and powered up, power down the MBP.
    Power back up the MBP and hold the following keys before you hear the start up chime:
    Option, command, P,R (no commas) continue to hold these keys till you hear the start up chime 2 times.

  • How can I create a file with the excel file type?

    I work with forms 4.5 and I could create "TEXT_IO.FILE_TYPE", but with this I make a I/O TEXT file not a file with the characteristics from a excel file! Can somebody help me please?!?!?
    Best regards,
    Chris from Portugal

    The extension file must be 'CSV' and not 'CVS'. It's better to separate your items by a ';'
    The HOST command you have to execute after creating the file it's HOST(EXEL_PATH SPACE YOUR_FILE) OR Open the DOS PROMPT and type: Exel your_file_name.

  • How can I overwrite a file with the same name in Content DB?

    Hi All,
    In Content DB if I upload a file with the same name as a previous one, the application shows the warning message:
    " ...You cannot upload "XXXXXX.doc" to "Test 1" because an item with the same name already exists ..."
    And the alternatives are "Create Version" or "Cancel" the operation. Is there any way to overwrite a previous file as we can do it in Oracle Files ?
    Regards
    Harvey

    Hi All,
    Can anybody from the Content DB product development answer this question?

    Close and restart Photoshop if you have not already done so.
    In Photoshop, go to the Help - About Plug-in... menu then choose Camera Raw.  What version does it say there?
