How can I drag and drop using the notebook touchpad?

I'm using Windows Vista on a Dell Inspiron


Double-tap, but hold the second tap. Release to drop the item.


This is dependent on the driver you use.

Your best bet to start is to take a look at "Control Panel" > "Mouse" and then having a look through the settings.

But as sblair said, by default - if you have tap to click on, you double tap holding the second then drag and drop to where you want... so +1 to sblair.
