Perhaps one of the biggest complaints on the new Taskbar is that it’s no longer possible to drag and drop items to pin them in the bar or drag files to the app button to maximize the window to open the file. However, it appears that Microsoft is listening to feedback (via Deskmodder) and planning to reverse some of the limitations, including bringing back the ability to drop items in the Taskbar. It’s not clear when this functionality will return, but it’s rumored for the next feature update of Windows 11 (version 22H2), which the company is planning to release during fall 2022. As per usual, Microsoft will first test the support with Insiders with devices enrolled in the Dev Channel in the coming months. Although we are now hearing about this reversal, the drag and drop feature has been discovered in early development builds of Windows 11. However, it was a feature you needed to enable using the registry. All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied. Use any information at your own risk.
