Inside OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion: Screen Sharing adds drag and drop file transfers

“Remote Screen Sharing is enhanced in this summer’s release of OS X Mountain Lion, adding support for drag and drop file transfers between the viewer and the remote desktop and enhancing support for virtual displays,” AppleInsider reports.
“Screen Sharing, a remote access feature Apple first added to OS X 10.5 Leopard to enable viewing or controlling another Mac’s desktop, is gaining a feature from Apple Remote Desktop: the ability to drag files from the local desktop into a remote session,” AppleInsider reports. “After connecting to a remote host, the local user can now drag files to the desktop, or target a specific app, invoking Exposé to, for example, drag an image file to a Pages document, select the window of the desired document, and place the graphic in the document.”
