How to show what action will happen when selected items are dragged in File Explorer

By default, when you drag an item in File Explorer from one location to another, the behavior is not very consistent.

In this article, I would like to share with you a simple tip on how to reliably know what action will happen when you use drag and drop on selected items in File Explorer.
