Files in left panel not draggable

I uploaded the images without trouble, but when I try to drag them into the Img folder as instructed, clicking and dragging doesn't seem to do anything.

I am also having this issue... Will keep an eye on this post...

Weird indeed. Hey if you're up to it maybe we can remote connect so I can see your laptop. Just give me a time.

Thanks! I would be up for it if you think it would help! I am experiencing this issue both on my Mac desktop and my Linux laptop, on Chrome and Safari.

Hey Ryan Schafer text me at (254) 307-1995 or email at dd@techskills.ninja so we can check this thinghy out..

I am quite SURE I am READING this WRONG but I figured I'd post anyways just in case somebody else doesn't encounter potential problems...

NOT SURE if this solves any problems but I've got three theories: 1) the files DID move but it's not easily discernable because the only visible clue it left where an indent from left to right. 2) The files that you are trying to drag are still in their compressed/unextracted state and 3) the space where you're trying to drag the files are not landing inside the box where it says "Drop files to upload."

Theory #2 - In Windows, sometimes when you double left-click on a zip file, it lets you view the files or contents inside of that zip file without actuall uncompressing/extracting the zip file. This means that even though you can see the contents (files inside the zip file), you can't really do anything with them because they still live inside that zip file. Solution: right-click on the zip file and make to "uncompress/extract files..."

Theory #3 - I was actually able to recreate this little annoying mistake. I tried to drag the files to the left panel of the workspace but it didn't upload. It finally hit me that when I was letting go of the left-click button, my cursor was outside (above) the box that says "Drop files to upload." When I tried to drag again, this time, before I let go of the left-click button, I made sure the cursor was on the bottom inside the box. And sure enough the green plus sign appeared and it worked. See screenshots on the link below.

Hey, sorry my Treehouse membership is on pause for now, however in case someone else experiences the same thing I do want to clarify!

I downloaded the files, unzipped them, dragged them to the left panel in the "Drop files to upload" box, and watched them upload successfully. However, when I tried to drag them around after that to put them in a folder, nothing happened.
