SharePoint – Can’t Drag and Drop Web Parts on some pages?

This problem will arise when you have a combination of a shallow height screen and a wiki page (you may have a wiki page without realising it – SharePoint uses them as the default in places, and normally that’s not a bad thing).

The article Hey – why can’t I move Web Parts below the visible portion of my SharePoint page? has two short videos under 2 minutes each that illustrates minimising web parts as a walk around. This discussion advocates cut and paste Can’t change order of web parts.
