I have MacVim 8.2.2576. When I drag a file onto it from the Finder it opens in a new tab. I have seen the
:help drag-n-drop but I did not see any option as I prefer.
Is there any ways to configure like that?

MacVim has a preferences dialog in the usual (for a Mac) place. Its General setting "Open files from applications" controls what happens when you drop a file onto the app. The preferences let you choose between "in a new window" and "in the current window". The latter has a pop-up to control exactly what you get when you open files in the current window: splits, tabs, windows, and/or updating the arglist.
