Drag-and-Drop Support

Faspex supports the dragging and dropping of files and folders for transfer, but this support varies by platform and browser. See the table below for details on how this release of Faspex supports drag-and-drop in your environment:

Browser Windows Client Mac OS X Client Linux Client
Firefox Files and folders Files and folders Drag-and-drop not supported
Chrome Files and folders Files and folders Drag-and-drop not supported
IE 8 and 9* Files and folders
IE 10 and 11* Files

* Internet Explorer is limited in support for drag-and-drop because of how it records drop events. Edge does not support drag-and-drop from the system into the browser. For further information, see
