@sasha_pugliese The behavior you are encountering isn't a bug, but rather a security restriction imposed by Windows. Due to Windows security isolation if your File Explorer and Designer are running at different permissions levels you will not be able to drag and drop files into Designer. This behavior most frequently occurs on Windows 10 when Designer is running with elevated privileges (right click and select 'Run as administrator'). You can check this in Designer by going to Help > About. If the help dialog shows 'Running Elevated' you will not be able to drag and drop files. If it shows 'Running Non-Elevated' you will be able to drag and drop files.
@scottgrossnickle and @DataKimist. This is Windows functionality and isn't something we have any control over. As such uninstalling/reinstalling Designer likely will not help. Windows provides a wide array of methods to run an application as an administrator, and also allows you to set an application to always run as an administrator. You can find more information on these options (section 8 specifically covers how to set an application or shortcut to always run as an administrator) at the following link:
