OK, so it's about placement only, right/
There are "Upload" and "Download" buttons above file panels (assuming you are using the default "Commander" interface).
WinSCP is a very good and useful software! Congratulations! As a former user of Fire-FTP I miss a button for uploading and downloading files. With F5 or with the right mouse button is also very good, but a button in the middle would be great!
