Trying to move a page....

  Paddylad 15:29 02 Sep 2010

When I left click and hold the button down to move a page sideways all that moves is the outer frame. How do I correct this please?

Try right clicking Menu.customize.
Enable context menu's and dragging and dropping make sure it is ticked.Apply Ok.

See if that helps.

Dont you have to click and hold on the blue band at the top of the page or do I misunderstand your question.

Try.Right clicking my computer.Properties.Advanced.Setting and make sure show windows contents while dragging is ticked.Apply.ok.

That was on Windows7. XP or Vista may be a bit different but in just about the same location.

What page and which application are you talking about? Are you trying to move a window?

Thanks for replies.
Noldi you are correct,you didn't misunderstand
buteman unfortunately that doesn't work either but dont stop trying. My OS is XP.
Sea Urchin any page at all.

I've just tried to go into Control Panel and discovered that it was missing. Yes, missing. It wasn't in it's usual place after I hit the Start button. So I had to decide on a Restore, after which my PC is back in order. I can again move pages to my heart's content. Thanks for the help, always appreciated on this forum.

So if Noldi was correct then you were referring to moving windows. A page would be one of several pages in a document in Word for example.

Of course you are right. I sometimes get a little mixed up with the phraseology, but always seem to get where I'm going in the end.
