Shell Drag and Drop
FolderSizes allows users to drag and drop file system paths onto various areas of the product user interface.
This feature provides a convenient means of working with the Windows shell. For example, you can drag one or more folders from a Windows Explorer window into the main window frame to initiate an immediate analysis.
The following drop target areas have been defined:
|•||Main window - Dragging and dropping one or more paths onto any part of the main application window will initiate an immediate analysis of those paths.|
|•||Search window - Dragging and dropping paths into the "search paths" portion of the search window will add them to the path list.|
|•||File Reports window - Dragging and dropping paths onto any part of the File Reports window will trigger their immediate analysis.|
|•||Multiple Path window - Dragging and dropping paths onto any part of the Multiple Path window will add them to the path list.|
You can drag and drop folder, drive, and network paths into FolderSizes. Please note that file paths are not a valid drop source, and will be ignored if attempted.
If you drag and drop a shell shortcut into FolderSizes, the target of the shell link will be resolved and, if valid, processed as through it were a normal file system path.
