Automated files transfer from FTP folder to local server

Hello everyone,
I am very new in using WinSCP and pretty new to all the file transfer process. So forgive me if my questions are too obvious or my language is not proffesinal.
I have established a connection on WinSCP between hosted FTP folder and my local server. So I can download files manually and all is good.
What I am trying to figure out is how to automate the data update process.
I need to schedule the data download from hosted folder to local server every night on specific time and that task will start automatically.
I was told by my host provider that there is a way to do it through windows task but I have no idea how to make it work.
Would somebody be able to help me with that?
Thanks in advance
