is an open source free SFTP client and FTP client för Windows. Legazy
SCP protocol is also supported. Its main function is safe copying of
files between a local and a remote computer.

Choosing the Right User Interface

If you are a new WinSCP user, you may want to select the Explorer interface
as it should be familiar to any Windows user. However, if you are used
to Norton Commander, used by several contemporary file managers (Total
Commander, FAR, Altap Salamander), choose this one. Commander interface
is primarily focused on easy keyboard control. You can use it without
ever touching your mouse. One who is used to it can perform the
operations much faster.

Commander Interface

The first interface
is based on Norton Commander and similar file managers. The interface
displays a local folder in the left panel and a remote folder in the
right panel. Most of the time, you’ll transfer files between these
folders, though you can also transfer files to a different folder.

Explorer Interface

The second interface
is similar to Windows Explorer, and you only see the remote folder. To
transfer files, enter the target local directory’s location or drag and
drop. Both interfaces offer the same transfer methods.



The default English user interface, WinSCP can be switched to other languages.
You will have the first opportunity to select your preferred language during the installation. If you download your preferred language later or change your mind, you can change the language using the Language button on the bottom of the Login dialog.
However, note that the language chosen during installation will
affect the language of the icons which the installer creates (program
group in Start menu, "Send to" link, etc). The icons are fixed and will not change when you switch your language later.

Internal Text Editor

WinSCP has an integrated simple text editor you can use to edit remote or local text files. If you want to use a more complex editor or edit binary files, you need to set up external editor.


The editor capabilities are similar to those of Notepad (simple editor shipped with Windows):
  • Clipboard operations: Copy (Ctrl+C), Cut (Ctrl+X), Paste (Ctrl+V).
  • Undo (Ctrl+Z), Redo (Ctrl+Y).
  • Find (Ctrl+F), Replace (Ctrl+H), Find next (F3).
  • Go to line number (Ctrl+G).
  • Save (Ctrl+S).
  • Reload (Ctrl+R)

When you save the remote file, WinSCP starts a upload.
