Windows shortcuts - file does not open via a drag-n-drop functionality workflow

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! #AffinityV2 #Windows  

I have a disturbing bug in a workflow senario that worked well in V1 but there is such a frustration in V2:
While having a file at desktop or other folder, I want to quickly open it in an app, so I create some shortcuts on desktop for frequently used programs. When I drag a compatible file on a V1 app, it opens it immediately.
While I already manage to create similar shortcuts for V2, unfortunately this is not working.

How can someone achieve that same workflow?

I am attaching a video capture on what I mean, for convenience reasons:

Welcome to the forums here :12_slight_smile:
You can right-click on the image link and select "Open with".
If you need the drag-and-drop functionality, you should install the exe programme files of the apps - instead of the MSIX files.
