Command Prompt for Windows




File Drag and Drop

The WinOne® Command Prompt supports Drag and Drop for any program that can drag files (eg. Explorer). One or more file or path names can be dragged into the main WinOne® Command Prompt window, and when dropped, the file or path names will be added to the end of the WinOne® command line.

For example, to drag a file from Explorer, simply position the mouse cursor over the icon to drag, press and hold down the left mouse button, drag the icon until the mouse cursor is inside the main WinOne® Command Prompt window and release the left mouse button to drop the file. During the dragging process the cursor will change to one of the following, as it is moved around the desktop :-

the window can accept the file.
the window can accept the files.
the window can not accept the file(s).

File names that are dropped into the main WinOne® Command Prompt window, will have a space character added to the end of the file name and path names will have a backslash character added to the end of the path name.

To drag one or more files from the WinOne® Command Prompt to another program that accepts a file drop (eg. the Program Manager) use the DRAG command.
