FTP using Windows 7
Posted on 2014-02-28
Using FTP in Windows 7 behaves as follows:
It correctly displays the FTP folders and files. You can navigate to different folders and browse file and folder lists. When you double click on a file to open it, Windows Explorer will launch an Internet Explorer window to open the file. The file location points to a local temp folder, e.g.:
C:\Users\WINDOWS_USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\B5TPE5SG\SampleText.doc
Whereas FTP in Windows XP opens the file I double-click on DIRECTLY (i.e. it does NOT download a copy of it) so I can edit the file directly without having to edit the file then copy it back. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I NEED TO HAPPEN IN WINDOWS 7.
Is there a way I can get the way FTP works in Windows XP to work in Windows 7.
