Opening a Qlik Sense file from Hard Drive

I downloaded a file from Qlik Sense Cloud and want to open it up in the hub. With QlikView you just navigated to the file (via File/Open) but not sure how to do this with Qlik Sense. Additionally I have created a couple of apps in the hub but do not know where they are getting stored - I searched everywhere.

Seems basic but could find the solution anywhere on community.

Copy the file into your APPS folder. Something like: C:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps

Thanks! Looks like that is the only way to see and open a file.

You can also drag and drop the file onto Hub. This will open the file from its original location, so you won't need to copy it into the Apps folder.

Re: Opening a Qlik Sense file from Hard Drive

Hi juraj.misina‌ , thanks for sharing the post.  I put it together because this feature does not seem to be documented, and it is a really quick and easy way of opening a file in situ without having to copy it to a specific location, or having it left in your Hub afterwards.
