Running Applications from Drop Zones on the Front Panel

Certain controls on the Front Panel--such as the Printer, Mailer and Web Browser controls--act as drop zones (see "Front Panel Drop Zones") that activate the relevant application when you drag and drop appropriate text or files on them. For example, if you drop a file on the Mailer control, Mailer displays a New Message window with the file attached to the new message.

For instructions on drop zones, see "Front Panel Drop Zones" and "Tour of the Front Panel".
