FileZilla is a free and open source software that allows you to transfer files between your local computer and a remote server using FTP, FTPS or SFTP protocols. FileZilla is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other platforms. In this article, we will show you how to download, install and use FileZilla on Windows 10.
To download FileZilla, you can visit its official website[^1^] or its SourceForge page[^3^]. You will see different options for downloading FileZilla Client or FileZilla Server. The client is for transferring files and the server is for making files available for others. Choose the client option and select the file appropriate for your platform. In this case, we will choose Windows (64bit x86). You can also download FileZilla Pro, which offers additional protocol support for cloud storage services such as Amazon S3, Google Drive, Dropbox and more.
After downloading the file, run the installer and follow the instructions. You may see some bundled offers during the installation process. You can choose to accept or decline them according to your preference. After the installation is complete, you can launch FileZilla from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut.
When you open FileZilla, you will see a user interface with four main sections: the menu bar, the toolbar, the message log and the file view. The menu bar contains various options for configuring and using FileZilla. The toolbar contains quick access buttons for common actions such as connecting to a server, refreshing the file view and transferring files. The message log displays information about the status of your connection and transfers. The file view shows your local files on the left and your remote files on the right.
To connect to a server, you need to enter its host name, port number, username and password in the quick connect bar at the top of the window. Alternatively, you can use the site manager from the File menu to store and manage your connection details and logins. You can also use bookmarks to save specific locations on your local or remote file system.
To transfer files between your local and remote directories, you can use drag and drop or double click on them. You can also use the context menu to perform actions such as rename, delete, create directory and more. You can view the progress of your transfers in the queue at the bottom of the window. You can also limit the number of simultaneous transfers or server connections from the Transfer menu.
FileZilla supports resume on both downloads and uploads, timeout detection, firewall support, SSL/TLS encryption and more.
