This is the Flash implementation we used to run our user study. Your job, as a subject, is to file icons into folders or to drop them onto a specific application icon. The demo will prompt you by highlighting the icon you are supposed to drag with a blue arrow box and the target with a green arrow box. As soon as you file an icon, the next target pair is highlighted. If you have completed the whole set of ten, five more sets come up. Then you repeat the same sequence without drag-and-pop support. And again on two more desktops.
Click the Windows start button inside the demo to bring up the control panel to jump between levels and to customize drag-and-pop.
