Gmail's Download Attachment via Drag & Drop is not working recently


Gmail released a useful feature in August which allows user to drag and drop attachments out of the E-mail directly to the computer. As far as I know it supports only Google Chrome It was really handy and I use it nearly every day.


However, in recent days, I can only get a GIF image (which is the file type icon) instead of the file if I drag it out from Gmail. I seems not to be alone and someone has reported it to Google at here. The issue is still open. Let's look forward to the fix soon.

Update 2011-04-07:
Finally, as confirmed by Google Employee on the support forum, the feature comes back again!!! Late better than none!!! Hurray!!!!

  6. Dear Google,
    Please, let us know if resolving of this issue is on the list. Migrated recently, I really miss this feature. And it seems I am not alone.
