I have Lightroom classic and running most recent version of Catalina. My drag and drop dragging photos into collections is not working. I know it's not the computer because I can drag things around on my desktop. I want to organize photos into collections and I cannot get anything to drag - whether a single photo or several at a time.
You have to drag photos within LR by dragging from the center of the thumbnail itself, not the grey border around it. (This is a long-time misfeature of LR that trips up many people.)

I can not drag and drop to move files or to put into collection as of the last update 9.4. And I am dragging from the center of the thumbnail.
I am not having this problem in Lightroom Classic 9.4, Windows 10.
Are you sure you are dragging into a Collection, and not a smart collection or collection set?
"I can not drag and drop to move files or to put into collection as of the last update 9.4. And I am dragging from the center of the thumbnail."
First troubleshooting steps to figure out what's going wrong:
- Try making a new collection -- can you drag into that?
- Right-click one of the problem collections and do Set As Target Collection. Then right-click one of the problem photos and do Add To Target Collection. Does that work?
- Try making a new test catalog, import a few photos into it, and make a new collection -- can you drag photos into that?

I can't dray and drop to collections or any othe folders
When you point your mouse at a photo and then hold the mouse button and drag, even if you drag a millimeter or two, you should see a teeny tiny thumbnail and hand icon, both of which move to where you drag it. Do you see that?
