Start supports drag'n'drop in different places. The most common ways are shown below:

Drop from Finder to an application entry

The application is started and the file or directory is passed to the application.

Drop from Finder to a Tag

The Finder-Objekt will be added to this Tag.

Drop an address from Safari to a Tag

The URL will be added to this Tag.

Drop an Entry from the right side of the Main Window to an Tag

The Entry will be added to this Tag.

Drop one or more files or directories from Finder to the icon in the menu bar

The main window of Start is displayed and the dropped files and/or directories are passed to the application launched next.

Start also supports the so-called "Spring-Loading". For example, if you drag a file from Finder to a tag and wait here briefly (without releasing the mouse button), Start switches to this tag and displays the contents. You can then perform the drop on an application of this tag.



Start offers a DropStack for files and folders. Simply drag files and folders with the mouse into the upper free area. As soon as there are entries in the DropStack, they will be passed to the next launched application.

Tips: * Pin the main window so that it does not close when Start loses focus. Now you can easily fill the DropStack with different entries. * You can also remove entries of the DropStack afterwards by right-clicking on the stack. * If you drag additional entries onto the DropStack, they will be added to the stack.
