How to make winscp automatically accept server host key

Hi all
I'm in a test environment and know and understand the risks
It's just for convenience
I am using WinSCP of GUI interface, version: 5.17.9
I think this version is lastversion

The problem is that when the host secret key of the server is inconsistent with the secret key in the winscp cache, I have to click the update button. What can I do to make it automatically update by default.

I didn't find winscp in the relevant settings can be set
I've been searching for solutions that I haven't found for a long time,
like

WinSCP GUI does not have such option. You always have to confirm the new hostkey manually.

Can I change the configuration file or windows registry file to achieve this function

Yes, you can import the key to the registry/storage upfront.
