    Hi,

    I have a Windows XP VM in fullscreen mode and want to copy over some files from OS X using the new drag and drop feature.

    How can I do this ? Leaving the focus (Ctrl - Alt) and displaying the Finder above the VM to start a drag and drop operation does not work.

    I don't like to implement shared folders for this.

    You can't drag-n-drop if you are running full screen.
    Drag-n-drop only works if yo are in a windowed mode.
    Shared folders works Great!.
    I've just set up a TEMP folder on the Mac side and then mapped it to a drive letter in Windows.
    Couldn't be easier!
    :D

    Grrrrr !

    Maybe Parallels should implement "Copy and Paste" of files and folders between the OS X host and a VM.

    Highlight some files in the Finder, Copy, switch to the fullscreen VM and paste the files and folders ... that would be great.
