When dragging files from WinSCP (v5.5.3) to the desktop, application ignores which monitor file was targeted to. File always manifests on primary screen. I find this annoying because my main monitor is littered with Windows. Consequently, I need to minimize everything before I can access copied file [from desktop]. It'd be more convenient if WinSCP forced file to appear exactly where it was dropped. That's how Windows Explorer and WinZIP both behave.

This is a drawback of WinSCP using drag&drop shell extension to find out where you dropped the files to.
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/dragext#drawbacks
You can switch to "temporary folder" mode:
