Keyboard modifiers and drag-to-dock behaviors Desktop
i just saw a nice feature of the dock : when you drag an object (file or folder) onto the right side, it tries to move other items to let you drop the object into an empty space.

if you want to quickly drop "into" a folder, just press the command key, and the empty space will disappear....

[Editor: This is pretty slick; hit the command key, watch the open space disappear. You can also hold down command before you drag the object, and the space will never open up in the first place!]

NEW INFO: You can also hold down CMD-OPTION while dragging, and this will force the system to use the app you are hovering over to open the file you are dropping.
