drag and drop files from browser to folder?
IE8

I suspect this is probably impossible, but it won't hurt to ask.

If a hyperlink on a webpage leads to a certain file (such as a pdf or
doc file), the usual way to download the target file is to right-click
and Save Target As... --- kind of a rigmarole.

I tried dragging the link into a desktop folder, but only the link
itself transferred, not the target file. Is there a way to drag and
drop the target file into a folder? Doesn't seem to be. (Wouldn't
this be a useful functionality?)

Thanks.

No...because you are dragging the link, not the object itself. The
object has not yet downloaded.
