The new layer definition files added recently ist's really great.
But it’s only possible to add .qrl file to a QGIS project through the menu Layer, option add from layer definition file… or by drag and drop the .qlr directly into the GUI, like it is currently possible to do with supported data files.
It would be nice an easy way like a button similar to the Add Vector Layer.
Another thing that could be equal to the Add Vector layer is the possibility to add more than one file at once.

I confirm the interest of having a button to add QLR directly into QGis.
I add a problem that I encounter every time I open QLR layers : unlike all the other buttons and menus for adding layers, QGis does not remember the last folder used and points to C:\\Users\\myusername.
This forces us to re-examine the entire tree to access each data.

I second this motion strongly. In the process of setting up a shared QGIS environment, I planned to use *.qlr files to distribute predefined layers for users. It was a surprise that they are missing from the Browser.
Adding the file type there, and making it possible to drag or doubleklick them to add them to the canvas does not seem like a difficult task. Will this be fixed in 3.0?

Hi,

In 2.18 it's possible to drag/drop qlr files to canvas.

Qlr files are still missing from the browser, this is an annoying issue for those who mainly use it for loading data. Hope to see this fixed in 3.0

Actually QGIS stil does not remember the last folder used in this tool and points to C:\\Users\\myusername
