Hello,

I have pasted the relevant portion from Jaws help. I have also added my 
observations below. Give it a try if it helps you.

Drag and Drop (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH)

This command is used to drag items from one location and drop them in 
another. Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press 
CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can 
switch to the PC Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you 
have positioned the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would 
like to move the item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item 
will be moved to the position of the active cursor.

My observation: Both the dragged item and the place should be visible on the 
screen. Otherwise the action will be cancelled. For a trial,
Go to Windows Explorer window and expand one of the drives, say C drive.

Now locate a file or folder using jaws cursor. Or, select a file and route 
jaws cursor to pc cursor using insert+num pad minus.

use the key combination, ctrl+insert+num pad slash to drag the item.

Locate a folder or even a drive using jaws cursor. It will make sure that 
you are not hiding the desired item.

Use the same key combination ctrl+insert+num pad slash to complete the drop 
operation. Jaws will confirm if it succeeds or fails.

Remember that you cannot drag a file to a new location when the dragged item 
is covered. If you want to drag an item from one window to another window, 
say from Desktop to C drive, keep both windows in Restore mode from the 
system control menu using alt+size. Sighted people can use the window resize 
option to perform this operation.
Best regards,
