The ability to get a prompt when dragging object

There is a program called Prompt version 1.12 (pmpt112.zip) found on Hobbes.

It is abandoned shareware. Luckily, I purchased it years ago. This is one of the first things I install on eComStation. What does it do?

32bit program to prompt for drag-and-drop action

When dragging and dropping, a small dialog box box appears allowing the user to choose whether they want to

move, copy, migrate a program (make program object), or create a shadow. This also worked for Java 1.1 programs at the time.

I would like to see something like this in eCS. Probably have an option selection in the "system "properties as to whether to enable this or not.

New users would not be guessing as to what they just did when they d-n-d.
