Windows 11: drag and drop on the taskbar will return

For some surprising reason, Microsoft has removed the drag-and-drop system on the Windows 11 taskbar. This has frustrated many users, but the functionality will return with an update.

A useful function will return on Windows 11

Drag and drop on the task bar is useful when users want to quickly run a file on a particular software. It was possible with Windows 10 and previous versions, but Microsoft removed the functionality with Windows 11. The group has never publicly explained what the reason for this choice was, but they have obviously listened to user feedback and are counting on it. to put back.

According to Deskmodder, Microsoft will be reintroducing drag and drop in a Dev version of Windows 11 and that will happen after Christmas. We must therefore expect that all users will be able to benefit from it in the course of 2022. In particular, it would be a question of availability for all in the fall of 2022. In other words, we will have to wait a little while longer. Those in need of this feature are encouraged to stick with Windows 10 instead, at least for now.

Microsoft released the final version of Windows 11 a few weeks ago. Not all of the features originally announced were ready. This is particularly the case with support for Android applications. It is currently in testing for members of the Windows Insider program. Support for all is expected to occur in the first half of 2022.
