Customer Question
Hi, I am editing...

Hi, I am editing a word doc and no longer can highlight text and drag to a new position. Did I unintentionally disable something?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your computer or device?

Oh dear. How do I find out?

Technician's Assistant: The Software Technician will be able to walk you through that. When did you last update your Word?

I can't recall.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I think that is it. Many thanks.
