importing a json powery query file into dekstop

I exported a number of Power Queries done in one instance of PowerBI and now want to import them into the desktop application.  My first thought was to use the JSON import process, but this seems to assume that it's a JSON-formatted data source, not Power Query code. 


I'm sure there's a simple solution.  Can someone point me to the process to import these JSON Power Query files?

Unfortunately I don't have access to the original anymore.   Is there a straightforward way to copy it out of the JSON file?

No solution for the json files, but you can just copy the m-script from the advanced editor and copy that to a blank query. 


This will duplicate all the steps.
