Hi James,

The problem with drag and drop is, that both windows have to be visible
on screen and as a jaws user you not always no this.

Trying to learn how to do a drag and drop with JAWS. I've opened a folder with some files in it. Pressed Control + Insert + Numpad slash and I get that drag and drop and to move the PC cursor, JAWS cursor or touch pad to the location where I want to drop. When I move to another folder, and press the same keystrokes I get an error JAWS saying the drag and drop isn't found and it might be covered by another window then the drag and drop action is canceled.

Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?
