Windows 7: How to Drag and drop a object using keyboard?

How to Drag and drop a object using keyboard?

Others may think silly about this question but the reality is I have to drag and drop several images into InDesign from a folder each one by one. Is it possible to drag and drop images from desktop (folder) to Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, etc?

Hope a positive reply.

You can use Mouse Keys, which uses the numeric keypad as a mouse.
