Hi Experts

I setup a basic ftp server on Windows 2016 server.  I can use ftp clients to download files from the server.  But I can't download any when I use any of browsers.  I can browse the ftp folder and  there is no download option to choose.

Please advise and thank you very much in advance,

Try double-clicking on the file desired.  Some browsers also support right-clicking on the file and selecting "Save" or "Save As."

It looks like files can be downloaded, but can we download the whole folder instead?  Thank you so much

No, downloading multiple files requires the MGET command and this is supported only in an FTP client.
