Pod Pointer – Take CTRL over copying!

Pod Pointer

We’ve all done the drag and drop when we want to move something (like a file or an email).  Did you know that one little button can change the whole drag and drop thing to drag and COPY?  In many programs, if you hold down the Crtl key while “dropping”, you will create a copy of the item, instead of just moving it.

I find this really useful when I am scheduling someone else in my office for something and I don’t want to send them a calendar invite. I create the calendar entry in my calendar, open their calendar and ctrl-drop it in theirs.

You might find it useful to copy an email into multiple folders (“useful tech tips” and “stuff to share with all my friends” folders, for example) and this would be an easy way to do so.

It even works with text within a document.
