Edit: Solved in post #19 and above.

Hi guys, I have the 10+ and DeX on macOS and it's awesome. But, all the articles (even on XDA) say you can simply "drag and drop" files.

I've found that I can indeed drop files from macOS Finder onto DeX and they get uploaded to the phone's Downloads (!) folder. Cool.

But I can't copy from the phone to the computer. Dragging from Samsung's Files app within DeX does not work. When someone works this out, please reply.

Has anyone figured out any way to move photos from the phone? With DeX installed you can't use Android File Manager...

At the moment short answer is no. Looks like Samsung over promised and under deliver. The DeX will be updated with drag and drop file management. Its so sad, Sammy has removed the disk drive host when u plugs in the usb to pc. Bummer. Which was so convenient just drag and drop anything. At moment looks like the only option is cloud.

Hi, so if I connect my phone to my pc using a USB cable is it not possible to drag and drop files from my phone? If not is this just a Note 10 problem? Thanks.

While drag and drop is not possible, You should still have access to your Phones Device Storage from within windows.
I can access both the 256GB partition and my External SD Card via Explorer on windows 10. Its not ideal, but i can still drag and drop back and forth. Just beats the purpose of Dex and there advertisements of the drag and drop on the dex window

Can you clarify the exact steps you are taking and with which software?

Yep, Sammy made it difficult for us. Shoot, I transfer video files constantly.

No software needed. Its a plug and play. If u dont have otg cable, get something like this. Works like a charm.
