Save to remote locations quickly

As useful as the GoTo menu is, it doesn’t help if you need to open or save a file from/to a location that’s not already in the GoTo menu. If the folder you need is buried many folders deep, or on another partition, your only choice is to navigate the entire hierarchy until you get there, right? Wrong. If the folder in question is already open, just drag any file out of that folder into your file panel. This won’t move or copy that file to the location of the file panel. Instead, it will change the location of the file panel to equal the location of the dragged file. This is only useful if that remote folder is already open — but when it is, it’s an excellent time saver.
