Unable to drag and drop files in sharepoint 2013 document libraries


An issue was reported to me where the users were unable to upload files into document libraries by dragging and dropping them on document libraries. This functionality in turn was working fine on Chrome and Firefox latest browsers. The reasons behind is that this functionality requires HTML 5 which is available in latest version of Chrome and Firefox. This is also available in IE 10. However to get this worked in IE 8 and IE 9 Office 2013 needs to be installed which will apply an active X control.

The office 2013 was installed by the users and this issue was confirmed to be resolved.

I hope this will help you out.
