Can't drag and drop on Windows 8 when using VMware workstation

If you like me have been having problems with drag and drop suddenly stopping working then please find this simple solution. This doesn't relate to the UAC issue where you can't drag from one Windows running as Administrator to or from another Explorer window not running as administrator but when the ability to drag files suddenly stops working.

It seems that this is caused when an application such as VMware workstation locks this function out. As I found from the post below, the simple fix is to just hit the escape key.
