What do you do when you want to drag a file from one location and then drop it to another place?
Before discovering this new way, I often pressed down and held the left button of my mouse, dragged the file to another location and then released the button to drop it. Is that the way you are using right now?
Well, you don’t need to do that anymore. There is another method that is more straightforward to help you to drag and drop. You don’t need to hold your mouse button when dragging and dropping.
How To Drag And Drop Files Without Holding The Mouse Button
In Windows 10, there is an option to enable drag & drop without holding your mouse button. To activate this feature, just follow my steps below:
1. Navigate to Settings -> Devices.
2. Look at the left sidebar, select “Mouse & Touchpad“, and then choose “Additional mouse options“.
3. A “Mouse Properties” window will appear, select the Buttons tab and tick on the “Turn on ClickLock” checkbox to enable the drag & drop without holding mouse button feature.
From now on, you can quickly move a file from a place to another location without holding your mouse button. Instead, you can select it for several seconds, and then move your mouse to move the file to the destination. Then click on your mouse button again to drop the file.
Can it be any simpler?
