Drag and Drop

Important: for security reasons this feature is not enabled by default, the server must be started with open-files=yes. See wiki/FileTransfers.


Open a file manager and drag any file onto a window that is managed by xpra.

For debugging, use the "dragndrop" debug flag, see also #770.


  • this feature is only available in version 2.1 and newer (GUI, etc), see #1493
  • the file will be uploaded and opened with the default application, rather than the application it was dropped onto - #1494
