I can change the direction of my sun light in shading mode

Hi. I cannot change the direction of my sun in shading mode for some reason. I can do it when I change to layout mode. Can you help please?

  • Do you mean the SUNLAMP or the background HDRI?
  • If working in different modes “Shading” and “Layout” mode. It can be that your (sun) object properties are different. Like in one mode, you’ve accidentally locked the object.

You seem to have selected the sun light, so I see no reason why it would not move with the usual tools in the 3D view.
Mind you it is dark orange not light orange which implies it is not the active object. Is something else selected as well that we can not see?
We need a fuller explanation of the problem I think.
