Drag’n’drop files Desktop File manager with 20.04 LTS doesn’t work ; it worked on 18.04 LTS

With Ubuntu 18.04, I can drag and drop files from Desktop to File manager and vice versa.

On my other Ubuntu 20.04 install, this is no more possible.

Has this fetaure been voluntarily removed or is it an accidental regression?

How to enable it again?

Many people seem to have noticed the same problem, see for example the 100+ voted comment about this on the video Ubuntu 20.04 LTS: What’s New?: “Love Ubuntu, but I’m still disappointed a basic feature like drag & dropping files to/from desktop into the file manager is missing.”.
