My computer doesn't seem to recognize when I hold down the left mouse button. It responds normally when I click the button, but not when I hold it down. It won't let me drag files on the desktop or anything else that involves holding down the button. Is the problem with the mouse or the computer, and what do I do?

Try another mouse and/or try this mouse on another system
If the problem follows the mouse it might be a bad mouse
In the beginning there was the command line.
