DropIt Dictionary

In this page you can find the meaning of the main lexical terms used in DropIt.


One of the most powerful features of DropIt is the support to customize the Destination of your Associations. To do it, you can use an unlimited number of Abbreviations, generally known as “environment variables”, that DropIt will replace with related values during the process.


DropIt allows to process your files and folders with several Actions. When you create an Association, you have to select one Action. It will be used on Matching Files and Folders during the process.

Additional Filter:



DropIt needs to know how to process files and folders, to automate it. So it allows to create an unlimited number of Associations between Rules to filter files/folders and the Action to process them.


Favourite Association:

Matching Files / Folders:

Main Context Menu:


Monitored Folder / Folder Monitoring:


Progress Window:

Regular Expression:


To decide what will be processed with an Action, you need to define how your files and folders will be filtered by DropIt. You can do it defining some Rules for your Association. They can be Rules with normal syntax (you can find some examples from the “Rule Settings” button in that field), or can be Regular Expressions“ (for advanced users, they can be enabled from the “Rule Settings” button). === Target image / Floating icon: === DropIt uses a special minimalist interface. It is defined as Target Image or Floating Icon. It floats on your screen and you can also move it with drag&drop. To process files and folders, you simply have to drop them on the Target Image. You can right click it to open the Main Context Menu. You can also modify and change the Target Image from Profiles » Customize''.
