Microsoft is testing another new feature for the Your Phone app in Windows 10. Like many of the recently added features, the latest new feature is exclusive to Samsung devices.

The new update enables support for drag-and-drop, so you can drag-and-drop files from your PC to your phone to transfer a file. The feature lets users transfer files from their phone to their PC via drag-and-drop as well.

To be able to drag-and-drop files from your phone to your PC, you will have to open the My Files or Gallery app on your phone once you have opened the Phone Screen feature on the Your Phone app. Just press and hold, and drag the files to a folder on your PC to transfer them to your computer. The same thing works for when you want to transfer files from your PC to your phone, except you can simply select files from your PC and drag them onto the Your Phone app to start the transfer.

The feature lets users share up to 100 files at a time of any type, and the maximum file size limit for a single file is 512MB. You will need a Samsung device running Link to Windows version 1.5 or higher for the feature to work. And on your PC, you will need the Your Phone app version 1.2003.2, which is currently in testing with Windows Insiders.
