DropZone is a free software to create drag and drop folders on your desktop to move files. You can create multiple drag and drop folders each pointing to a different destination. For example a drag and drop folder for My Documents, Downloads, D Drive, Program files, etc. This would make it easy to move files. All you would have to do is drag and drop the files to the appropriate folder on your desktop and the file would be added to the destination drive or folder. You can say that DropZone creates a shortcut to various folders for you on the desktop itself.
Here is how to download DropZone:
- Click on the download link on the website.
- A zip folder would get downloaded
- Extract all files from the zip folder.
- Run the DropZone application file.
- As soon as you run it there will be a small window which will open on your desktop, like shown below.
How to use and create drag and drop folders:
The window you see on your desktop is the default window which points towards C drive “windows” folder and “program files” folder. To make multiple drop zones, you will need to copy the DropZone.exe file and rename them. For changing the destination or drop zone settings you will have to right click and select “Edit settings”. A window open up like shown below. From here you can change the title of the drop zone, the destination folder path of the drop zone, background color of the drop zone, etc.
Once you are done with the changes, save the file. After saving, again right click on the folder and select “reload settings”. Once the window reloads, it will open up reflecting the changes made by you.
DropZone is an good software to keep files organized. Specially if you are working on a project and you have to maintain multiple folders for each process. DropZone makes it easier to drop files in the correct folder in no time right from your desktop.
