I can't click to pick up & place items in inventory on Windows 8 Minecraft. Can this be enabled?

I have a laptop that has Windows 8 which I use for playing Minecraft. However when using the inventory, I have to hold my mouse to drag and pick the items and I don’t like that.

I have tried switching mouses but that didn’t work, is this possible to fix?

    Go into Options > Controls and turn Touchscreen Mode to OFF.

    you should just be able to left click and then move the mouse then left click again. (the fact you are on windows 8 doesnt change anything, it is the version of minecraft and set up of your mouse that could change this)
