These days I do not need a full FTP client as much as I used to several years ago. Part of this is just because we now tend to access everything over the Internet through websites instead of downloads from FTP servers.
Remember getting some big updates from a company by downloading from their FTP server?
Anyway, while there are plenty of fully equipped FTP clients out there to download, sometimes we just need a quick connection to grab some files – in my case for my website maintenance – and need something straight forward and simple.
Well did you know that there is an FTP client built right into the Windows File Explorer?
It has actually been there through the last few versions of Windows and is very easy to setup and use for these infrequent FTP sessions.
