While dragging a layer to another document is a common way of exporting layers in Photoshop, it may be a little trouble if you are working full-screen. There is one more way to do the job and that too not even going to the destination document.
Click the layer(s) you want to copy or export and hold ALT (or Option, in Mac) and drag the layer(s) to the new layer icon in the layer browser.

Now you will be asked to choose the destination document where you want it to be copied.

That's all!
