How to bring background transfers to the foreground?

This should be a simple task but for some reason I cannot find any option that allows me to bring the background transfer to the foreground.

It's not possible.
What is your use case for this?

really?

You mean you can't see a use case where you would want to check on your background transfers. Maybe see how far they have come, maybe to cancel the operation altogether or maybe figure out if you can close the program and restart your pc already.

It shouldn't have been implemented without an undo function built in, that's just basic HCI.

Sounds like you have hidden "Background transfers queue list" inadvertently:

I've selected "continue transfer in background", and after the foreground transfer window is gone, nothing happens. I have the queue visible, but it's empty. Am I missing something obvious?

Pressing "Proceed in background" terminates the transfer immediately in the latest version of winscp 5.17.2.
Thanks for your report.

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include a link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
