In SharePoint document library there is an option in action menu i.e “open in Windows Explorer”,When we click this one we can see all the documents in a window explorer,where we can drag and drop the documents for the document library.

But in case of a SharePoint generic list we don’t have this option.

To implement this functionality.

For this follow below Steps

1. Add a Content Editor WebPart in your page

2. Add below scripts

.httpFolder {behavior: url(#default#httpFolder);}
function fnOpenFolderView() {
oDAV.navigateFrame(“<update URL for the list see below for Example>“, “_self”);

<div id = “oDAV” class = “httpFolder”/>

<input type = “button” value = “Open Folder View” onclick =”fnOpenFolderView()”/>

3. Update the URL

Example URL


http://<Domain Name>/Lists/<List Name>/Attachments

Here we can drag and drop the documents to save as attachment for the list Item.

Sure its Helps
