WinSCP originally was a secure copy client which gradually moved on to conquer the domains of secure FTP (SFTP) first and then the legacy FTP (File Transfer Protocol). WinSCP can be integrated fully with Windows which allows you to transfer the files either through the context menu or through the drag and drop into the specific application windows.

Two layouts are possible with WinSCP, the first one looks similar to windows explorer while the second one is similar to Norton Commander. The second one has a few advanced features such as the combined view of both remote and local directories, synchronization and directory comparison.

WinSCP can be integrated with PuTTY which allows the sharing of predefined connections with specified hosts. The software also provides scripting support and a text editor. WinSCP is available in several languages apart from English. WinSCP is a freeware which can be downloaded and used without making any payment and without having any license instructions.

The installation of WinSCP is an easy process. One has to select the chosen layout during the installation. The commander interface has more features while the explorer is simple to look at and easy to use. It is also possible to export the preference settings of the program by the click of the mouse. WinSCP works in most of the Windows versions dated back to Win95.
