[BETA] Drag-and-Drop between your local PC and your Shadow PC


This feature is only available in the ALPHA and BETA environments at the moment.
As a reminder, the ALPHA and BETA applications are experimental versions and are not officially supported.
If you have any questions regarding the ALPHA or BETA apps, please contact us on our Discord only.
You can download the BETA application on our website and the ALPHA application on our Discord by following the instructions

Drag & Drop is our first real-time file transfer feature.
In this BETA version, you have the possibility to Drag and Drop your file(s) from your Local PC to your Shadow PC.

Please note that it is not possible to Drag and Drop from your Shadow PC to your local PC for now. Additionally, only files can be transferred at this time. You will be able to transfer folders in a future Shadow release.

One or several file(s), of any type and size, can be transferred in a single drag-and-drop operation.
Transfer speed will depend on your connection.
All transfers will end up in your user folder's "Downloads" folder on your Shadow PC's "C:\" drive.

It is not possible to drop your file(s) on the exact location of your cursor for now. They will automatically end up in the “Downloads” folder.

How to use the Drag-and-Drop feature?

  1. Select and click your file(s) on your Local PC.

  2. Drag them to your Shadow PC window and drop them.

  3. The transfer starts and a notification will appear at the top of your screen.

  4. Another notification will inform you of the transfer completion or failure.

  5. You can find the transferred file(s) in the "Downloads" folder of your user folder, located on the "C:\" drive of your Shadow PC.
