you need an ftp client. there is one built into IE6 but many prefer a free program called Coffee Cup. Also popular is CuteFTP for a small fee (~$15). go to and download, say, Coffee Cup. Install it and configure it for the ftp server you need to exchange files with. you'll need a server name like or and also a username and password plus maybe a starting folder. once again, get this info:
server name
starting folder

hope this helps...

You may be able to FTP (if uploading a website) directly through Internet Explorer.

I stopped using WSFTP pro for most stuff now.

You can go to a command prompt and FTP [FTP address]
To get options: type FTP \? at prompt.
Not exactly Windows, but it works.
