Re: Drag and drop removed from JAWS Version 2019.1903.9

Ok, yes, in that case, I agree with you. I’d even go as far as to say it’s absolutely a necessary task to be able to accomplish with the keyboard, even if one doesn’t have to use it much. Sure, copy and paste will work for text, files, etc, in most cases, but not all software is designed to be used that way. I’d love to know their reasons…

Hi, Casey. They didn’t say they are the same thing. They said that usually you can get the same result with the clipboard actions as you can with Drag and drop. I don’t agree with what the support person said.

Yeah…

It is nuts that a support person would claim they are the same thing.

They told me that in most cases, CONTROL plus C, and CONTROL plus V act as drag and drop.

Whoever told you that, well . . .

CTRL+C has been copy and CTRL+V has been paste since day one of Windows.  CTRL+X has been cut.

While one can get the same result using copy or cut and paste for files, there are many, many, many uses for drag and drop beyond file transfer.
