I used to think that this error was really fucking stupid
, until I realised that there is in fact a valid reason for it.
If you drag an object onto a taskbar
has no way to know which part of the window you wanted it dragged onto.
Of course, that's no excuse for Microsoft
's failure to explain
why you can't drag something onto a taskbar button. Something in the help, or perhaps a hyperlink
from the error message itself would have sufficed.
More sensible would be to provide a way for applications to specify a default drop target for this situation.
I still think Windows is really fucking stupid
in lots of other ways.
