Drag and Drop with shell-style previews

Adam Root has posted a step-by-step post on how to enable nice preview images across windows when implementing drag and drop. I haven't written on the topic in a while, but it's turned out to be a very popular source of emails even today, so I'm sure old-time readers will enjoy.

Which gets me thinking about even older times and how cool drag and drop and rich clipboard support was in its day (and still is when it's done right, as the post shows!). A shout out to everyone who ever read the "Inside OLE 2" book by Kraig Brockschmidt.
