Drag and Drop Attachments to Save Them

Gmail some time back introduced two new features

  1. Dragging files to upload them as attachments.
  2. Dragging images into messages.

Now another new feature has been introduced. If you’re using Google Chrome, you can also drag attachments out of messages you receive to save them to your computer.Let’s say you have an email open containing an attachment. Hover your mouse over the attachment’s “Download” link or its file icon and a tooltip appears that says: “Click to view OR drag to your desktop to save."

Simply click and hold, then drag your cursor to anywhere in your file system that you want to save the file. Release the mouse button, and your attachment is saved (for large files, you may see a progress dialog).
