Uploading to an FTP site[edit]

Opening the FTP site in Explorer[edit]

Uploading to an FTP site in Windows Explorer is fairly simple. Just follow these simple steps: Hold the Windows Key and press "R," then type in "explorer ftp://" followed by your FTP site. Note, It is perfectly fine to have FTP site that starts with "ftp.", such as ftp.example.com, this will mean you have to type "ftp://ftp.example.com", which is perfectly fine.


 explorer ftp://ftp.example.com
