Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of

computer graphical user interfaces, drag-and-drop is the action of
selecting a virtual object by "grabbing" it and dragging it to a
different location or onto another virtual object. In general, it
can be used to invoke many kinds of actions, or create various
types of associations between two abstract objects. As a feature,
support for drag-and-drop is not found in all software, though it
is sometimes a fast and easy-to-learn technique for users to
perform tasks. However, the lack of affordances in drag-and-drop
implementations means that it is not always obvious that an item
can be dragged. Dragging requires more physical effort than moving
the same pointing device without holding down any buttons. Because
of this, a user cannot move as quickly and precisely while
dragging. However, drag-and-drop operations have the advantage of
thoughtfully chunking together two operands into a single action.
Extended dragging and dropping can stress the mousing hand.
