Answers on this thread: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1230884/cannot-move-files-from-and-to-desktop mention that the drag and drop to desktop does not work because in the experimental version of Nautlius. But as another answer points out, it does not seem to be possible to disable this.
This discussion about whether or not this is a feature or a bug: https://itsfoss.community/t/ubuntu-20-04-desktop-are-these-features-or-bugs/4610/13 did not seem to reach a consensus: some people claimed it was a bug and others said it was a feature.
Are we simply stuck with no drag and drop to desktop, or is there a work around? If not, will this eventually be possible, or is it an intended, permanent feature?
P.S. Please let us not turn this into a philosphical discussion whether this should be possible. I'm just wondering whether it is or will be.
