Drag-and-drop is not supported for PdaReach, this is by design
because the mouse down action on your PC is mapped to a complete
tap on the PDA to allow similar UI behavior between the two.
That means for things like scrollbar
you will need to click on the ends to scroll.
However you can still try to press and hold the ctrl key and perform
drag-and-drop or tap-and-hold operations for some applications such
as BugMe. However if the
UI (such as the text field) does not support this, it might cause
the application to freeze. Tap on the device itself should unfreeze
it if this ever happens.
Some games directly poll hardware buttons on
your PDA and will not listen to key events, they might not respond to
the app buttons.
You can hide the taskbar icon when PdaReach window is minimized and click
on the tray icon to restore it. Just change the setting through the menu
to enable this.

Treo SMS Agent allows you to send and receive SMS messages on Windows when PdaReach is connected.
It provides a convenient Windows interface with tabbed chatting-thread support. There are a lot
more you can do with SMS other than messaging. For example, you can send (or receive) short emails
just by sending messages to an email address directly. Or, you can use the Google SMS feature to
look up weather, stock quotes, business directory or even definition of a word. This feature
is available in 1.53 or above (for Treo devices only). But you need to turn it on from the settings.
