FTP client

Not many people seem to know this: the Windows file explorer can be used as a simple FTP client by entering a URL of the following format in the  text box where normally the directory is shown:

ftp://login:password@ftp.xxxx.com

Just drag files and whole directories to here and they will be transferred.

Note: when clicking on a URL like that the Internet explorer will start, allowing a “read-only” view of an FTP site.
