Drag and drop does not work with files

I updated my Fiji yesterday, following which I have lost the ability to drag and drop files into Fiji window to open them. I have come across a couple of old threads on this issue. I have tried deleting Fiji folder and reinstalling it, with no success. The java and JDK are up-to-date as well. I run windows 10. Please let me know if there is a solution to this issue.

I was able to fix this issue. It appears the problem is with SCIFIO: Edit > Options > ImageJ2 and unchecking the “Use SCIFIO when opening files” option restored my capacity to drag and drop image files and have them open.

Hello Pavan,

Can you reproduce the problem in plain ImageJ. I have the same problem on Win 10.

I am not able to open files in FIJI by drag and drop. The open command works fine.
I am on Win10, and I’ve already reinstalled FIJI and updated JAVA.
Cheked already the SCIFIO uncheking option and didn’t work.
Any help appreciated

It seems the problem is solved. Here is what I think:

I was opening FIJI through a shortcut icon that I had generated in the same folder.

When I opened fiji using the ImageJ-win64.exe file directly, It worked fine (allowing drag and drop). I do not understand why, but I hope it helps.
