SharePoint Server 2013: Drag and drop contents to Library

To have the drag and drop feature to SharePoint Server 2013, here are the scenario or requirements of Web browsers.

  • Internet Explorer 10
  • Internet Explorer 9 with Office 2013 Installed
  • Internet Explorer 8 with Office 2013 Installed
  • FireFox latest version
  • Chrome latest version

Hence, for IE 8 and IE 9, it must have Office 2013 installed on the machines, else the drag and drop feature will not be available.


  • <p>I guess my question is why isn&#39;t the support built into IE 9 or added since with the release of SP 2013 IE 9 was the latest version of the browser? &nbsp;It can&#39;t be a dependency on Office 2013 since this works with Firefox and Chrome. &nbsp;A lot of businesses can&#39;t upgrade on the fly to the latest browsers due to compatability issues with 3rd party products which we require testing. &nbsp;I&#39;m trying to understand what is &quot;missing&quot; in IE 9.</p>

  • <p>My guess is that IE9 doesn&#39;t implement HTML5 drag &#39;n&#39; drop</p>

  • <p>Is it possible to install an add-on manually to IE9 so it can work with office 2010, instead of having 2013 installed?</p>

  • <p>Hi,</p> <p>@Meir</p> <p>I read some hack stuff to implement this drag and drop. You can install SharePoint Designer 2013, it&#39;s free and it contain the active x code to get the drag and drop feature.</p>
