Drop On

To

add the current page to the root of your favorites
(to add it to a folder drop on the favorites menu)

Note in I.E. 7 only dropping on the favorites menu works.  Dropping on the new icon for the favorites side bar or the new add to favorites icon does nothing.

make the current page your home page

Note in I.E. 7 dropping on the new home page icon does nothing.

desktop

create shortcut

folder

create shortcut

page

load page from another I.E. instance or refresh the page in the current instance

Note in I.E. 7 dropping on the new tab button is the same as dropping on the page itself with the dropped page loading in the active tab.

text box

add the url of the current page to the text box
(great for forum postings - just drag the icon from one instance of I.E. to a text box on a 2nd instance)
