Did you know Right Drag Drop works?

This article assumes that you are a right handed person, if you are a left handed person, you have to use the other mouse button (secondary mouse button).

Drag and drop performs most popular action

When you drag and drop items, the most commonly expected logical action happens. For example, when you drag a file from one folder and drop it into another folder, it is moved.

That is called the DEFAULT ACTION.

Another example is… when you drag a number from the corner of the cell, it automatically adds further numbers.

This is a good thing in most cases. But if you don’t like the default or standard action, then you have a problem. To solve this issue, there is RIGHT DRAG DROP.

Press the RIGHT mouse button while dragging

That is called Right Drag (Drop). So what is the big deal? What benefits do you get?
