How to Type in a File’s Path in Terminal Without Literally Typing It In?

Suppose you’re working with a file in terminal and that file’s path is large enough to type. Of course, you can type it in using Tab or so to say auto-completion. Everyone knows that. But I’m not talking about this knows-to-all trick. My trick is easy and works like a magic.
Just drag and drop that file in terminal from the file manager e.g. Nautilus, Nemo, etc.
Isn’t it awesome?
