Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Copy/paste into Nautilus

Can't you just hit alt-tab while holding your mouse button on the drag
and drop it on your preferred window? Alternatively, you can click and
drag the mouse and hold it over the netbook remix entry on the taskbar
till that window is on top and then drop the songs.

Just a thought, I do this with album covers from chrome to rhythmbox.
