Drag-and-drop DOWNLOAD from SharePoint to PC
SharePoint Online has very intuitive support for drag-and-drop from one's PC to SharePoint (upload). What I need to do is offer (technophobic) users a simple way to drag-and-drop files from SharePoint to one's PC (download). When I attempt to do so, it creates shortcuts on the PC to the SharePoint file. I've been experimenting with both IE and Chrome and can not get either to work.

I agree 100%. We keep backup copies of SharePoint files on a local server. It seems OBVIOUS that being able to drag and drop files and folders (download) to a local drive should be as easy as uploading. Are you listening, Microsoft?
