Not sure what you mean, but go into System Preferences and make sure all your trackpad gestures are enabled. This will allow you to scroll up,down, left and right in just about any window. There is also a drag lock gesture but for basic dragging, if that's what you're asking about, just press down on the trackpad while dragging an object.

I actually do a little technique where I hold the trackpad down with my index finger and slide to drag with my middle finger... Takes a little practice but with time you'll wonder how you ever operated without one.
