Ctrl – Drag = Copy anything


Another simple but extremely useful action. Press Ctrl key and drag the item to copy it. Works in File Explorer, Desktop icons, Paragraphs, SmartArt, Charts, Pivots, Shapes, Pictures, Videos, Visio Shapes, selected cells, and so on across Office and Windows.

Exception: For PowerPoint thumbnail view (left side of Normal slide view), drag first and then press CTRL key.
