Drag and Drop to Command Prompt feature in Windows 7

The Windows 7 Command Prompt now supports drag & drop of files. This means that to enter the destination of any file you can just drag & drop it into the command prompt window.


This small feature is not so useful for most users, but for those who work frequently in Windows command prompt, this is a lifesaver.

Sadly this drag & drop functionality is only for files and does not apply with some text commands which you might need to copy/paste in the command prompt quickly. Whether the files are executable, text files, documents, or whatever, they can now all be dragged and dropped into the command prompt.

This has existed since XP.

Note that it doesn't work if you're dragging from a non-privileged window into a command prompt running as administrator.
