Dragging & Dropping

 

 

 

 

 

 

See the blue square on the left? This square can be moved. Place your pointer on the square. Click and HOLD the mouse button. Now move your mouse around. The square moves with you. This is dragging. When you let go of the mouse button, the square is in a new place on the page. This is dropping.

Dragging and dropping objects is frequently used when playing computer games (like solitaire) or for moving objects while using a word processing program.

Go ahead and give it a try!
