How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Can't drag emails into folder pane

I can't drag emails into the left hand folder pane, like was possible with the old interface. Would be such a time saver if this works in the new interface as well. Using Edge 42.17134.1.0

        I wish I could move all selected mail in the inbox into another folder. I liked the location of the "new message" button.

        I can drag and drop emails from my inbox to any folder in the left pane. I can also do the same to my online archive folder. I am using Chrome as my browser.

        Option to move bulk mail from one folder to another folder. Option to move some N mails from one folder to another folder.

        The new interface falls short, you can't drag and drop message(s) to to other folders anymore, I'm using Internet Explorer. E.g. from Inbox to another folder. You also can't press delete to Delete a message when you're on it, you actually have to press Delete from the top menu.

        Need to be able to drag and drop emails into folders. Too many steps to move it.

        You cannot drag and drop e-mails into folders from the in-box. The "move" system works but is VERY CUMBERSOME. Please bring back this feature. I clean out my in-box regularly by dragging and dropping incoming e-mails into appropriate folders. Thanks.

        Unable to drag and drop mails from inbox to folders in Edge. In old Outlook on the web this works.

        in the old version, you can drag emails from inbox to drop them in folders, couldn't do that in the new version.

        I would like to be able to drag emails from my inbox to folders I don't want to have to go to move emails every time so time consuming.
        Simple is best

        J'ai sélectionné tous les mails à mon nom pour les déplacer mais en vain.

        I haven't explored the new outlook yet, but right away I decided to switch back b/c it doesn't look like I can drag emails into my archive.
