I assumed you wanted to load variables from this MATLAB-specific file. Were you looking to load some other file (image, etc)?

Hi Victoria,
The following command might help you.
load('full path to file\file_name.mat');
For example, I used below command to load a file "test_data.mat" from my desktop to my MATLAB workspace.
load('C:\Users\singh\OneDrive\Pictures\test_data.mat');
