In recent Edge (not Chromium), MS enabled the drag and drop function, even for Outlook attachments before saving it. I was happy. But too early... In the Chromium version, it does not seem to be supported. Now that MS uses Chromium, is it possible to modify something to allow drag and drop from Outlook? 

Currently, it is CF_FILEDESCRIPTOR and CF_FILECONTENTS formats, and not the CF_HDROP that is needed.. Is this something that needs to be worked at MS end? or Chromium

Edit:

After searching now, I found the following commit;

https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git/+/d096e489ffeb46044e28f5f3d63ad37d2c3f47eb

Which suggested that MS works on this, and hopefully will have it available.

I can definitely see how allowing Drag and Drop in a Browser would be useful. That is a great suggestion and I will relay that to the product team as soon as possible.
