move windows to different desktop

in KDE, upon right-clicking in the title bar of a given window, I can send that window to any of my Desktops.
Is there a way of to move windows to a neighboring desktop just by dragging it to the edge of the actual desktop, so a part is visible in the current desktop and another part in the adjacent one?

The following doesn't make the window visible on both desktops, but it does allow you to drag windows from one desktop to another.

Open up the Control Centre and go to Desktop / Windows Behaviour. On the Advanced tab is an Active Desktop Borders box. Change the setting to either Only When Moving Windows or Always Enabled.
