Magical Drag & Drop 1: Open Subfolders by Dragging and Dropping to TabBar

There are so many magical drags-and-drops designed for Exp+ file manager and web browser. However, that they might haven't been made good use is the reason why we are introducing them in series.

In general, when you want to open a few subfolders, you have to open one at a time. Well, with Risingware Exp+, you can finish this lousy job by one drag-and-drop. All you have to do is dragging and dropping them to one of the tab bars. Below is an example of drag-and-drop between panels.

Step 1
Select subfolders. You can do secure selection by clicking on their icons.



Step 2 Drag selected subfolders and cross panels.



Step 3 Drop them on circled area of the opposite panel. You may drop them on a tab bar, address bar, or any other spot in that area. Dropping it on a tab will have a different effect.

Instance 1: Dropping on blank spot of the tab bar



Instance 2: Dropping on address bar



Note:

Dropping outside the marked area, like toolbar, has no effect at all.


Step 4 As a result, the three selected subfolders will be opened respectively in new tabs of the opposite panel.

In addition, as mentioned in Step 3, the tab you drop on will be replaced by the first subfolder selected in step 1.
