Drag & Drop Function No Longer Works in Organizer

During this past week (7/20/20-7/24/20), the Drag & Drop function within Organizer  stopped working.  I am no longer able to place photos from Organizer Media View into an Album or move photos from folder to folder.  When attempting the D&D function, a circle appears with a red cross and I an unable to complete the function.


I can use the D&D function in Windows 10 to move files between folders so the problem appears to be limited to PSE.  


Has anyone else experienced this problem?  If so, do you have a solution.
