Directory Window Drag Menu

A number of operations can be invoked by dragging a group of selected entries to a drop site. A drop site can be in the source directory window or in another directory window. The cursor icon will change to a smiley face when it is over an allowed drop position, and the mouse button can then be released to pop up a drag menu. A drag menu contains a subset of the following operations:
