-Upload options dialog: 
&screenshotpict(upload) &screenshotpict(upload)
-Download options dialog:+===== [[target_directory]] Target Directory =====
 +Use the box at the top of dialog to set destination directory and [[operation_mask|operation mask]]. The box is hidden for [[task_download#dragdrop|drag&drop downloads]] in [[ui_pref_dragdrop#temporary|temporary folder mode]], because in that mode WinSCP has no control over the target of the transfer.
 +
 +The destination directory is by default the current working directory (local for [[task_download|downloads]] and remote for [[task_upload|uploads]]). For downloads in [[ui_explorer|Explorer interface]], where there is no local working directory, it will be the last local directory used.
 +
 +If you omit the [[operation_mask|operation mask]], you must still include a trailing slash ''/'' (for upload) or backslash ''\'' (for download). Omitting the operation mask is the same as using mask ''*.*''.
 +
 +===== [[transfer_settings]] Transfer Settings =====
 +//Transfer settings// box shows current [[transfer_settings|transfer settings]].
-&screenshotpict(download)+To change the settings, use //Transfer settings// button to show [[ui_transfer_custom|Transfer Settings dialog]] (alternatively you may click //Transfer settings// box). Clicking drop down icon on the button reveals menu with list of configured [[transfer_settings#presets|presets]]. Command //Configure// opens Preferences dialog on //[[ui_pref_transfer|Transfer page]]//.
-By default the dialog appears collapsed, showing only very basic options. To display full range of options, press //More// button. The next time the dialog will appear expanded already. You can always collapse the dialog using //Less// button (appears instead of //More//).+===== Transfer on Background =====
 +Use //Transfer on background (add to transfer queue)// checkbox to instruct WinSCP to perform the [[transfer_queue#transferring|transfer on background]].
-===== Target Directory =====+You can set the default value for the options in [[ui_pref_background#background_transfers|preferences]].
-Use the box at the top of dialog to set destination directory and [[operation_mask|operation mask]]. The box is hidden for drag&drop downloads with disabled [[dragext|drag&drop shell extension]], because in the mode WinSCP has no control over target of the transfer.+
-The destination directory is by default the current working directory (local for [[task_download|downloads]] and remote for [[task_upload|uploads]]). For downloads in [[ui_explorer|Explorer-like interface]], where there is no local working directory, it will be the last local directory used. For [[task_download|downloads]] you can type even UNC path as target (''\\host\share\'').+You cannot use background transfers when downloading files using drag&drop to another application in [[ui_pref_dragdrop#temporary|temporary folder download mode]].
-If you omit the [[operation_mask|operation mask]], you must still include trailing slash ''/'' (for upload) or backslash ''\'' (for download). Omitting the operation mask is the same as using mask ''*.*''.+===== Saving Transfer Options =====
-===== Transfer Options =====+In the menu invoked from //Transfer settings// button:
-Most options of the dialog are subset of [[ui_transfer|transfer options]]. Options not affecting your particular direction of transfer ([[task_upload|upload]] or [[task_download|download]]) are hidden.+
-In addition to configuring the options manually you can load them from [[transfer_settings#transfer_settings_presets|transfer settings preset]]. Press button //Presets// to reveal drop down menu with list of configured presets. In the menu you will find also command //Configure// that opens Preferences dialog on //[[ui_pref_presets|Presets tab]]//.+  * //Set as Default// command sets the current transfer settings as default.
 +  * //Save as Preset// command saves the current transfer settings as a [[transfer_settings#presets|preset]].
-===== Additional Options =====+===== [[suppress]] Suppressing the Dialog =====
-The //New and updated file(s) only// checkbox makes WinSCP ignore files in source directory for which there exist file in the target directory with the same filename and the same or newer timestamp. The option is available for [[protocols#sftp_ssh_file_transfer_protocol|SFTP protocol]] only.+To suppress the dialog, check //Do not show this dialog box again//.
-The //Use same settings next time// checkbox makes your options become default [[transfer_settings|transfer options]]. It has the same effect as changing [[ui_pref_transfer|default transfer options]] in preferences.+For transfers initiated with drag&drop, the dialog is suppressed automatically after the first use, unless you explicitly opt to keep it in use by unchecking //Do not show this dialog box again//.
-For drag&drop transfers you will have additional checkbox //Do not show this dialog box again// to disable the dialog for further transfers. You can alway revert this in [[ui_pref_environment#confirmations|preferences]].+You can revert your decision in [[ui_pref_environment#confirmations|preferences]] any time. Use of the dialog is configured individually for transfers initiated with drag&drop and other transfers.
-Use //Transfer on background (add to transfer queue)// checkbox to instruct WinSCP to perform the [[transfer_queue#transferring_files_on_background|transfer on background]]. You can check //No confirmations// to avoid overwrite and other confirmations for the background transfer. You can set the default value for the options in [[ui_pref_background#background_transfers|preferences]].+===== [[generating_code]] Generating Transfer Code =====
 +Use the //Transfer Settings > Generate Code// command to generate a code that automates the transfer. The [[ui_generateurl|Generate Transfer Code]] window opens with the generated code.
