Right new, I want to make a application about drop and drag icons.

The major function is same as the "WINZIP" or "Recycle Bin".

I can move and add one or more items icon to my application icon and then link to other actions, such as copying or deleting the selected items.

Can anyone give me some similar example or information.

This is a default behavior in windows. It will simply start your program with the first parameter of the command line being the path to the file that was dragged on top of the icon.

See this article[^] about parsing command line parameters. Once you have the file name (or names if multiple files were dragged on), then you can do whatever you want with it.

That is a cool info. Never had a requirement to drag & drop stuff @ an icon.
