Drag and drop is a function of Windows and doesn't need activating.

If you're referring to the Start Menu, right click the Start button and in the menu that opens, left click Properties.

In the window that opens, on the Start Menu tab, click the Customize button and in the window that opens, scroll down the list to find then check "Enable context menus and dragging and dropping," click OK.
