Drag and drop file to file region of folder

Steps to reproduce

  1. Drag file in file explorer.
  2. Drop file between some other files.
  3. Nothing happens.

Expected result

I’d like to be able to drop a file anywhere in the child area of the folder, so on or between any files that are already there.

This is useful for big directories where a file is dragged up into a large open folder above the current one. The top folder is scrolled way up, but its files are immediately visible. The auto-scroll is off (and would not be super helpful), so I need to click-drag-mousewheel-scroll-drop which is not intuitive.

Actual result

Nothing happens, because I can’t drop the file there.
