can't download files from ftp server by any browsers

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,

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
