Topic "How to restore File Explorer as default FTP app. after WinSCO install."

Author Message

Hi,
Prior to installing WinSCP I could open Windows File Explorer, type FTP://192.168.0.1 in address bar and immediately open an FTP folder-view (in Windows Explorer) on a locally attached device. Now, after installing WinSCP, on entering the "FTP://..." URL, a WinSCP login dialog opens and I'm required to enter a username and password before opening the WinSCP window.

I liked the convenience of staying in Windows Explorer for anonymous FTP (not SFTP) sessions.

I've tried to change the default app. - "Set Associations" -for "FTP" sessions but WinSCP is the only option.

Any help is appreciated!

WinSCP should not override ftp:// registration of web browser. What version of Windows are you using? What version of WinSCP did you install?

This happened upon installation of WinSCP version 5.9.2 under Windows 7.
