I also prefer the old behaviour where only the server connection box opened because of those two reasons:
- The window in the background covers the whole screen so you can't have the server connection box open and do stuff in the background (for example on the desktop)
- The window has no purpose because you can't click on it (modal)
Otherwise: thank you very much for the great update!
I am running into this too. Sometimes I open WinSCP and then drag the window to another monitor. Now I have to connect to a server before I can drag the window. Can a preference please be added to restore the old behavior? PuTTY works the same way - you don't get the main PuTTY console window until you connect to a server.
I would second the request to allow the user to move the window.
I have the use case where I have multiple monitors and a couple of remote desktops or virtual machines. I find it annoying that I am not able to move the WinSCP before connecting to my monitor of choice. Something so simple for more pleasant UX may help with the donation support.
