I Think it could be useful if we can drag and drop files (.trec; .PNG, .MP4, etc) from file explorer to media bin.

Thanks, Carol. Yes, I can!

I was dragging the file from on computer to other computer from a remote desktop connection. 
My mistake! Thanks!

This is not working for me now. I just reinstalled in my rebuilt computer (Windows 10) and I swore the drag and drop used to work. It does not any longer.

Hi CP,

Are you using Camtasia 2018?  The Camtasia 2018 library is read only, so you are not able to drag and drop files into that location.  However, you can drag and drop files into any of your user libraries or the Media Bin.  Try creating a new library, or select one of your existing user libraries.

I'm using camtasia 9 and I have never seen the menu you've shown here, nor can I find it anywhere.   - also looks like I forgot to register this re-install. :) 



I was trying to drag and drop into the media bin. ...the same media bin that I upload to successfully using the long way with the extra options like Drive.

 I'll show you. 

...10m later.  Ok so - I tried to capture a video but the capture video initialization keeps failing with an error 18.  Not sure what that is.

But I did grab a screenshot showing exactly what I'm trying to do and that the cursor is blocked while trying to drop a file into the media bin. I thought maybe a network issue, but I get the same results dragging right from the desktop or the local drive, C.



Thanks!
