A small utility to make FTP Shortcuts easier to create and modify.
A small utility to make FTP Shortcuts easier to create and modify, using the standard Windows shell command to open FTP sites in normal 'explorer' windows. Passwords are always hidden and the files containing them are encrypted, making it a little more secure. Ideal for those wishing to use their normal browser to Access FTP sites.
This is a small, stand-alone (executable file only) utility, which simply utilises the features of Windows to access FTP sites. Although using a special third-party FTP Client may have many extra features, it is still possible to access FTP sites without one.
HOW IT WORKS
Upon running FTPShortcut.exe for the first time, it will confirm if you want to continue running it from the initial location and you will have the chance to move it to a better place if you wish. It sets itself up on your system by writing a few entries in the system's Registry, by adding the keys HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.fss and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTfss-file. These can be removed by clicking on the 'Unregister' button (in the 'About' window), for when you decide to remove this utility or move it to a different location.
The registry entries are The Secret to making it integrate with the operating system, and result in a new addition to the 'New' menu which appears in the 'File' and popup (right-click) menu in any folder. That new entry is shown as 'FTP Shortcut Settings'. Selecting this will create an empty file.
Right-clicking on this new file will bring up the popup menu again, and the two important options for this is 'Open' and 'Edit'. Selecting 'Edit' will open the file in this utility so that you can Review and change the settings. Selecting 'Open' does the same as double-clicking on the file, and a browser window should open to the FTP site (specified in the file). If the file is newly created (empty), double-clicking it will open up the editor.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
