How in the world to you drag and drop files from the mac desktop to windows desktop? Dragging and dropping doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you installed additions? Look for the icon that sort of looks like a jigsaw piece in VPC, and click on it.

    I just tried it on my machine, and drag and drop copies the files across.

    Right. When you first install a Windows system into VPC, it doesn't have the 'plug ins' needed to support drag & drop or other features.

    If you're running in full screen, switch to windowed mode. At the bottom of your window will be several icons, one of which is a puzzle peice. Click it, select "Install Additions" and let the installer run & reboot the virtual system. After that, you'll have the full features you want.
