Dragging a tab to create a new window

When I try to drag a tab to create a new window, the screen just flashes and then returns to the original screen.  

1.  I have gone into settings and removed the hardware acceleration option.
2.  I have "reset" my settings.
3.  I have checked my extensions and just removed all of these that I thought I could do without.

I don't know where to go from here but I would welcome any possible suggestions!  Thank you!

I found a solution to this after weeks of this not working.

Go to chrome://flags from a new tab.

Find the setting below and enable it.

Allow tab detaching in fullscreen
Allow tabs to detach from the tabstrip when in fullscreen mode on Mac. – Mac

#enable-fullscreen-in-tab-detaching

Relaunch your browser.
