    If you click on Start, Settings, Taskbar and start Menu, then click the
    Start Menu tab, then the Customize button. Click Advanced tab, scroll down
    and ensure 'Enable Dragging and Dropping ' is checked.

    If you are using the Classic Start Menu, click the customize button, scroll
    down and make sure 'Enable Dragging and Dropping' is checked.

    Go to Start and right click it, take Properties, click Customise. On
    the Advanced page, in the panel, check 'Enable dragging and dropping'
    and OK, click Apply then OK at the outer level
