FileZilla Tutorials – Bookmark, search and use multi connect
In the third part of our FileZilla tutorials, learn how to use the bookmark feature, search tool and multiple connections to better your file transfers.
Use the Bookmark feature
The bookmark feature allows you to create a shortcut to folders inside either your remote site (HostedFTP account) or local site (PC) to quickly access files. Typically, bookmarks are used to quicken your transfers to frequently used folders. To use the bookmark feature, follow the instructions below:
Find the file or folder you want to bookmark.
Go to the top of the interface and click “bookmarks” then “add bookmarks” from the drop down menu.
In the bookmark window, select “Global bookmark” to create a bookmark that can be seen when connected to any site connection or “Site-specific bookmark” to create a bookmark that can only be seen when connected to your current site connection.
Give the bookmark a name.
Pair folders to be opened during the bookmark by specifying the folders in the local and remote directory fields. By default, FileZilla will select the current folders opened in FileZilla.
Select “Synchronized browsing” if you have identical folder structures, to mirror folder navigation on your local and remote site simultaneously.
Select “Directory comparison” to have FileZilla highlight the different files and folders in your local and remote site.
Go to “bookmarks” at the top of FileZilla to use your bookmark at any time.
