Dragging to Minimized Windows

Posted By On November 12, 2004 @ 3:36 PM In File & Disk Management,Shortcuts & Keyboard Tricks | No Comments

Do you know what I hate? Trying to drag something to a folder when the stupid thing is minimized. There you are, looking like an idiot with your finger down on the left mouse button with nowhere to drop. What can you do?

Easy—yell at your computer and curse at Microsoft.

After that, try this:

1. Grab the item and drag it to the taskbar button of the minimized folder.

2. Hold the mouse cursor over the button for a few seconds, the folder will open back up.

3. Drop the file into the folder and take back what you said about Microsoft (well, you don’t have to do that last part :-)

Cool huh?
