Hello,

First thing, thank you VERY MUCH for the quality SFTP client ! Smile I'm a former filezilla user, who gave up on the program when I found it was storing my passwords in plain text for anyone to see. I'm not confident enough that I will never ever accidentally allow access to my disks, so, well, I quit Fz, and finding that WinSCP does everything as well, or better, is a serious relief Smile

I'm using WinSCP 5.1.6 build 3394.

There are only two features that I miss, would there be a chance to have them added to WinSCP in the future ?

- a list of the already successfully (or not) uploaded files.
That, I believe, would be a MAJOR improvement.
For the moment, when I don't remember if I have uploaded a file or not, my only option is to try uploading it again and wait to see if I am prompted an "overwrite ?" confirmation. Worse, when I'm updating a remote site (with Notepad++ as editor) and I can't remember if I saved the updated file in N++, there is no way anymore to know what file is being ran on the remote server.
A list of what files were uploaded, with success or not, and at what time, would come really handy.

- control-W to close session tabs. This has become the standard keyboard shortcut in nearly all programs using tabs, and I find its absense in winSCP disturbing. Yeah, it's just a little detail Wink

Thank you very much if these suggestions (especially the first one, haha) can be given some consideration !
Kind regards,
Oliver

Wonderful !

Thank you very much for adding the control-W shortcut to the tracker, and even more, to tell me this is present in the 5.2 version !

Now knowing how stable the 5.2 beta is, I'll wait for the day it joins the stable releases, now I know I can wait. Thank you, once again Smile

I've recently learned that middle click on tabs usually closes them in web browsers and other tabbed programs. Could this be added to winscp? Thanks!
