What is the best way to drag a file from the desktop to an application when the screen is filled with windows that you don't want to manually move or adjust?
My current approach:
- Run "Show Desktop" (using a trackpad gesture or hitting F11 on my older mac)
- Select and hold the file with the trackpad
- Hit F11 to exit "Show Desktop"
- Drag the file on to the window
This works but it feels awkward because I need my left hand to cross over my body / keyboard to hit the F11 key while my right hand holds the trackpad down on the file.
Is there a better way to do this?
