How the loading order works with drag and drop

I thought this might be useful for people who don't know how the wad load order works when using drag and drop to load them.
I recently did some testing with a notepad and 4 wads. After an hour of testing i discovered how the load order works with drag and drop.
Turns out its alphabetical but, it starts the alphabet from whichever wad you started dragging from.

For example. If i have a, b, c and d wads, and highlight them all, and then click and hold on c to drag it onto the (g)zdoom executable, it will load the files c, d, a, b.

Starting from the file you clicked and held with, and looping the alphabet back around.
I know this may not seem useful if you already knew this, but hopefully it will save someone like me an hour or two in the future.

So it's basically best to just use a launcher. Noted.
