Windows 95 > Internet Explorer 4 Tips

Easy FTP

By: Arie Slob

With true Web integration, Windows Explorer gains some interesting new ftp features. Start Windows Explorer, then type a ftp address in the Address box and hit Enter. (If you don't see an Address box, select View from the menu bar, and toggle Toolbar). You will see the ftp site in the right-hand window, while your folder view remains on the left. Unfortunately, you can not simply drag a file from the ftp site to your local system. To save the remote file, click the file's name. You will get the standard Internet Explorer "File Download" dialog box. From there, you can browse to save the file in any folder you want.
