drag

Tech Computer Center logo

When someone asks you to drag something in a windowing system, they mean you should do these things:

  1. Using your mouse (or other pointing device), move the cursor until it is positioned on the thing they want you to drag.
  2. Press and hold a mouse button. (If they don't specify, they probably mean the left button; see `click' for more information on multiple mouse buttons.)
  3. Move the mouse to some new position, and then release the button you have been holding since step 2.
