PowerBook G4 drag and drop function not working

Hi guys, lately was experiencing a very bad malfunction from my PowerBook G4 drag and drop. As far as I know for this feature, we are able to drag then hold while we move our mouse over to a desired folder or destination, that selected folder will spring up it's internal folders' view. However this seems not to be working any further. Anyone knows what could be the issue? I was unable to find this piece of advise from else where and hence decided to seek advises from here. Thank you.

Go to Finder>Preferences>General>Spring loaded folders. Click to activate.

Sounds like someone changed the setting.

If someone else uses your Mac, make them an non-admin account, and enable quick user switching.
