I want to copy and insert a text through drag and drop from a browser or text editors like UltraEdit or Notepad++. When I drag the text over Windows 7 notepad, it is not accepting the selected text. Does Windows 7 notepad accept any other types other than a File types?

  • Sorry Lerner, your post is very hard to understand. Are you trying to drag and drop a file into notepad, or are you trying to drag and drop some text?

If you're just trying to "drag and drop" text then just copy and paste it into notepad instead of trying to drag and drop it.
