IDEA: A Desktop Hotspot to other location program
« on: January 08, 2008, 01:17:49 AM »
Hi, I need a program that defines a corner of the screen as a "drop target" for desktop items to be dragged upon and sent to another location (in my case my external hdd).  I download things to my desktop so I can find them and then hate having to open up the drive in explorer and then drag the items into it.

Strange I realize but I want my Desktop to look as clean as possible.

Thanks

 :) Here's DropOff!

Moves dropped files to a user defined folder.

Just place the script on the desktop, edit the target line in the code.
Now your can drop files on it, and they are moved to target.
You can of course have more than one script there, pointing to different folders.

It can easily be enhanced to overwrite or rename existing files, add a proper hotspot or whatever.
