You can drag a text or image file from local storage on the client device to a published application or open application in a remote desktop and drop the file's content into the application. To use this feature, you must have an Android 7.0 or later device, or a Chromebook that is running Chrome OS M63 or later.

For example, if you are using an Android phone, you can select Settings > Storage > Explore or open the MyFiles app, select a folder, and drag a text file to the WordPad application in a remote desktop. If you are using a Chromebook device, you can drag files from the Downloads folder or from a USB device attached to the Chromebook device.

This feature has the following limitations.

  • You can drag a maximum of 1 MB of data.
  • You cannot drag Rich Text Format (RTF) text.
  • If you select multiple files, only the content of the first file is dropped into the application.
  • You cannot drag text files and image files from a remote desktop or published application to the client device.
