DONE: Drop target to move files to predefined folders

(1/15) > >>

timns:
I once tried out a little program (probably an old Yahoo widget) that created several target icons on my desktop. When a file was drag-dropped onto one of them, it was automatically moved to some designated folder.

Unfortunately it never worked properly on my PC for some reason, and I didn't really like the whole Yahoo widget thing after a short time.

Does anyone fancy having a go at this?

More info if it piques anyone's interest, since I know how I'd like it to work.

Couldn't you just make shortcuts to each folder and drag and drop onto them? (yes I tested this, just now :D)

I'm just about to.

Good find! Thanks.

Ok, DropIt is "almost but not quite" -

* I don't want to rely just on an icon to remind me what each profile does. I'll need to be able to label it.
* I'd like to be able to have a choice of destinations pop up when I drop a file.
