Drag and Drop Keyboard Shortcuts in Windows 7 [ Reader Tip ]

Ads by Google

Danny, one of our readers, came up with some cool drag and drop keyboard shortcut combination for Windows 7 (and may be Vista and XP too).

Here’s his comment on our killer keyboard shortcuts article:

If the normal function of a drag & drop is to MOVE a file (e.g. between folders within the same drive/partition), CTRL+[drag&drop] will copy the file.

If the normal function of a drag & drop is to COPY a file (e.g. between folders of different drives/partitions), SHIFT+[drag&drop] will cut & paste the file.

Despite both situations, ALT+[drag&drop] will create a shortcut of the file in the destination folder.

Try this out and let us know if it worked for you. Thanks Danny!
