I have an older screen with a max resolution of 1024x768. According to all that I have found, Dash will always open full screen with a height of less than 799. That makes it very hard to drag things from Dash to the desktop when the desktop cannot be reached when Dash is open. I need to make Dash use less than the full screen so I can drag things to the desktop. This method (drag to desktop) seems to me to be the only viable way for non-techies to get things on the desktop.
I seem to be able to drag from Dash to the application bar on the left of the screen. Why can't I drag something from there to the desktop?
