WinSCP is great, but I think most people use FTP more than SFTP... at least I do. Smile

Is there a setting that you can set the default selection to your choice to save that step when adding new ftp accounts. I work in a web support realm and have to log into many people's ftp sites daily... so the extra step of having to change the SFTP to FTP each time is tedious.

So is there a setting or can one be added in future releases?
