Adding files to a newly created empty python project

I just downloaded Pycharm and created a new empy project.

How can I add/load/insert existing py file to the new project?

I was expecting to see a menu item such as: 'add files to project' or somthing like that.

Hello,

I just downloaded Pycharm and created a new empy project.

How can I add/load/insert existing py file to the new project?

I was expecting to see a menu item such as: 'add files to project' or

somthing like that.

If you already have existing code, you should open the directory with the

code using "Open Directory" action instead of creating a new empty project.

Alternatively, you can copy your code to the project directory using any

file manager, or open the existing file in PyCharm using "Open File" and

use the "Copy" action (F5) to copy it to the project directory.

This is a disappointing. Sometimes I have an existing folder and sometimes I just want to add one existing file to my current project. Is there really no way to do that, I am amazed at how much time I have spent googling adding an existing file, This should be a no brainer
