Hello, and Welcome
I am not sure this is your issue because the setting is supposed to be set as default.
Right click the Windows Globe and select Properties. Under the Start Menu tab click Customize. In the list make sure "Enable Context Menus and Dragging and Dropping" is checked.
If this is a desktop see if changing the mouse works or add a mouse if a laptop. Also try a new keyboard if a desktop. If the mouse is USB then switch USB ports. If this is a laptop then updating the touchpad driver may help.

Thank you for your answer. I already confirmed that context menus and dragging and dropping are checked, also tried with a new external mouse. The problem is not related to mouse or touchpad driver...

I think I found the problem! at least, for now is working...
Some malware actually changed HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop DragWidth and DragHeight from 4 to 9999. I restored the values again and it's working.

It's quite strange because none of my safety programs detected any kind of malware...
I have no idea what caused this... If anyone is having/had the same problem, please report

I lost the drag option for all applications. For me, the problem was the "Quick access" option on windows explorer. I got drag option back after shutting it off and restarting my computer. http://www.windowscentral.com/how-remove-quick-access-file-explorer-windows-10 for instructions for removing quick access.
