Windows 11: How To Enable Drag And Drop On The taskbar

Windows 11 arrived to fix the flaws and improve the experience we already had in Windows 10, but Microsoft ended up “killing” tools loved by users in the new edition of the operating system. One of the victims of the version released this year is “Drag and Drop”, the function of dragging and dropping items on the taskbar to use them in programs.

While Microsoft has not made any predictions about “drag and drop” to Windows 11, there is already a way to use the functionality in the operating system. This is possible thanks to a program created by fans with a very literal name: Windows 11 Drag & Drop to the taskbar.

The program is available on GitHub, is free to download and is very intuitive. See below how to download and configure the functionality.

1 – Enter the . in Windows 11 Drag & Drop to the taskbar page on GitHub and download the executable (.exe) file in the latest version.

2 – After the program is downloaded, click on the program to run it. The functionality is active when the icon with the face of Monalisa is present in the taskbar – it normally appears in the right corner, in the menu that hides items.

3 – With the new thing in action, just drag the icons into the programs, as happens in Windows 10.

4 – To configure the program startup with the system, right click on the Monalisa icon and open the “Configure” menu. In a text file that opens, select “1” to open the software at system startup or “0” to perform the action manually.

5 – To uninstall the program, just plug it in Windows 11 and delete the initially downloaded executable.
