Can I upoload files outside my project to (S)FTP?

Sometimes I use the Remote Host panel to load and edit files on the remote server - usually for quick testing purposes and therefore these are files which are not under my project root folder and not intended to be added to the project. This generally works very well but apart from editing existing remote files I also need a way to upload files which are outside my project, for example an image or some binary file that is on my disk elsewhere. Can I do this somehow? It's inconvenient to have to launch a separate FTP client just for this purpose while I have my remote host session already open in PHPStorm.

I tried dragging files from file explorer to the remote host panel but this doesn't work. Any way to do this without having to use an external program or copying the file to a folder in my project?
