[R] Help with strange RGui behavior? Will not consistently run source.

This issue bears some similarity to a problem I�ve been experiencing over the last few days. R 4.0.3, Windows 10, RGui. My ability to adjust window dimensions took a serious slide (cursor on edge or corner, click and tug). Usually only works now if I pause for awhile after the click before moving the cursor, while it used to work immediately every time. Similarly my ability to select text with a scroll became more difficult, but shift-clicking works fine. I just assumed my mouse was succumbing to age (still think that likeliest), or possibly related to the last Windows update a few days back (coincidental timing). So I doubt this is pertinent but thought I should mention it just in case.

Does the problem still occur if you connect remotely to your computer from
a different computer?
e.g. via remote desktop?
