Drag And Drop

Definition - What does Drag And Drop mean?

Drag and drop is a functionality by which users can select an object or a section of text and can move it to a desired location and "drop" it there. Drag and drop is a part of most graphical user interfaces, but is not found in all software.

Techopedia explains Drag And Drop

Using the drag and drop method is intended to be simple for users to move or copy items. In order to perform this action, the user must highlight the text or select the object to be moved, then press and hold down the left mouse button to grab the object. The user then drags the object to the desired location, while still holding down the mouse button. When the mouse button is released, it "drops" the object in that location, either moving or copying it, depending on the program.
