The other day, Lifehacker posted about Yoink, which "[acts] as a Middleman for Dragged and Dropped Files, Is a Life Saver on Small Screens". Since I have an 11-inch MacBook Air, I’ve already found a workaround that doesn’t require additional software. Note: I’m still using OS X Snow Leopard.
- Go to System Preferences > Expose & Spaces.
- Under Active Screen Corners, set one or two corners as All Windows. (I have the two right corners set for All Windows, and the bottom left for Desktop.)
With the source and destination Finder windows open, drag the file(s) to one of the active screen corners, hover over the source folder, then drop onto the active window.
P.S. Hi everybody. I’m geeking out, and I’m okay with it.
