Thank you Chau for a handy tip. There is also “Open with Explorer” option available from the Library Ribbon if you have Office desktop version installed on the computer. Library will show up as a folder in the Windows Explorer. It is very easy to drag and drop files to library. This is a good option for someone who is uncomfortable with Power Shell.
