  4. Cura supports 'drag and drop'! Simply open a explorer / finder window with your file present. Drag the file towards the 3D viewer. A '+' icon appears at your cursor. Release the mouse to load the file.

    Tip: Open a folder with multiple files beforehand, and drag and drop multiple files quickly!
