I was writing a letter in Word 2007 including some copied and pasted text, on going to "Save As" Word crashed. I tried this several times, each time resulting in Word crashing. I eventually copied the text and pasted into Wordpad from where I was able to save.
With this completed I reopened Word 2007 which then behaved perfectly, but On closing down word I then found that I had lost the ability to Drag 'n Drop, a method I use a lot with my photography. Any suggestions as to what was the problem with Word 2007 and also how to regain Drag 'n Drop
This came up automatically after several crashes, but I cancelled it as I wanted the letter printing off rather urgently. Will run Diagnostics shortly.
I've managed to repair Drag and drop after spending some time searching the Web, this appears to be a not uncommon problem with W7. Must apologise for not mentioning W7 in my OP. I picked up on one suggested solution which worked, though I've no idea why. This was Ctrl-Alt-Del followed by Esc. Drag and drop is now working ok.
