The Show hidden files checkbox toggles display of hidden files.
When Delete local files to recycle bin is checked, the removed local files are moved to Windows Recycle bin. This includes files deleted during synchronization (in GUI only, not in console mode). When not checked files are removed immediately without moving to recycle bin.
The Default directory is home directory checkbox makes initial directories of the session replace the home directories. It has no effect when session option Remember last user directory is also enabled.
The Remember panels state when switching sessions checkbox controls whether panels’ state (including focused item, panel sorting and browsing history) is saved for every opened session or not. The behaviour, when enabled, can be disabled selectively for local panel.
The Select whole name when renaming file checkbox controls whether only base file name (without extension) or whole file name is selected initially when renaming file.
The Show files sizes in short format checkbox controls format of file size in Size column. Short format (default) uses KiB, MiB, etc., units (similarly to Windows Explorer). Long format uses bytes always. You can also toggle this from context menu of Size column title. The option also affects size format on Synchronization Checklist and Find dialogs.
When Full row select checkbox is unchecked, file can be selected only by clicking its name (not whole line). This is convenient particularly, if you want to use selection marquee or want to have easy access to panel’s context menu.
Use Operation to perform on double-click to select what should WinSCP do when you double-click file in file panel:
The option is effectively ignored when resolving of symbolic links is disabled or not supported for current session, in which case double-clicking file is always interpreted as attempt to open it, just in case it is unresolved symbolic link.
It is possible to select between open and edit operation based on file extension. For this you will find Associated application editor preference useful.
