    I am running into the same issue with Discord on my web browser. I used to be able to drag channels, but now I can only drag categories. Dragging channels was never a problem for me before.

    Same problem here for quite some time now... two months or so.

    I can reorder channels on Windows XP, but not on Windows 10.

    Just noticed this too. I got the impression it was no longer an option for the browser app. Would be a pain if that were the case.

    Okay so I was having this issue but I figured out the problem! So when you go to click and drag a channel, before it didn't really matter where your mouse cursor was, so long as it was on the channel in the sidebar... However, this no longer seems to be the case, at least not for me. I had to put my mouse cursor to very left side of the channel's name.. to the left of the #. When you hover your cursor over the channel name, it changes to a glove(?), but I had to move my cursor to the left of the # until the cursor didn't change. When I clicked and tried to drag, it worked~ Sorry if this is a weird explanation but I was going crazy that I couldn't click and drag anymore until I accidentally had my cursor in that position.

    For those having problem with the desktop app (PC) I closed discord and then went to the taskbar. Then pressed "Show hidden icons" (the up arrow by your clock/date on windows) and right clicked "Quit discord" on the discord icon there. Then I restarted discord and I could drag the servers around normally again.

    Having similar issue too.

    When I select the channel to move to a new folder no matter where I click the channel thinks I'm trying to upload a channel to itself as a message. Very strange.

    Edit: I just figured out what Alleria was trying to say. If I click in the empty area between the highlighted channel bubble (to the left of the #) then I can drag. Thanks!

    Alright so i found out what to do LISTEN to Nathan Riddle His advice is REALLLLLY helpful so you know the channel go ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT and then you can drag it idk why discord would make this annoying system but it is what it is.

    Happening to me too. Dragging from the left doesn't fix it.

    For me it keeps saying "Upload to general!" So I do what it says but it still wont let me.

    The trick is to drag and drop from the gear icon (Channel settings), not from the Channel title itself

    ^ Pavel's advice actually works now. Here's the visual proof: you do need to drag the channel by the gear icon (shown on the far right)

    Alleria's workaround saved the day!

    Now, Discord, fix this. There is absolutely no universe in which "add attachment" is what the user is trying to do when dragging a channel name. I don't know what feature you were trying to inject but this is a very clear and problematic bug, especially for Windows 10 touch interfaces where touching and dragging tiny corners isn't feasible.
