I recently downloaded and installed WinSCP. I've been getting tired of Windows Explorer and chose WinSCP because it's free, updated frequently, supports dual panels, and even has some additional features if I ever need them.

Might sound silly, but I cannot get past the "WinSCP Login" menu. I just want to use WinSCP as a regular file explorer, but with dual windows. Is this possible or do I need an FTP or SFTP to open and use this file manager?

WinSCP is not a file manager.

Please read FAQ:

Thank you for replying, I will look into other options. I understand it's not in the cards at the moment, but why not? I think WinSCP has great potential to be a file manager someday. It would really help to kill two birds with one stone.

We are considering this. But obviously, it's a lot of work to do.
