You can drop a file onto explorer from the repobrowser without problems.
You can't drop it into the editor window of VS because that will use the
paths instead of the whole files when dropping (and it doesn't accept
'virtual' files either, it only accepts HDROP which means such a file
must already be downloaded from the repository).

That means you have to use the Explorer to drop the files to, then drag
those files onto VS.
