Of course, installing an FTP client is no different as with installing any applications. It will always add entries in the Windows registry besides copying the installation files into the system drive. An example of an FTP client that you can use is Core FTP. It supports SFTP [SSH], TLS, SSL, FTPS, browser integration, IDN, site-to-site transfers, drag-and-drop support, FTP transfer resume, file viewing and editing, custom commands, firewall support, FTP URL parsing, filters, command line transfers, and more.

Visit Core FTP for Microsoft Windows to download. You may also visit Core FTP Release History to see the change log and bug fixes. Another FTP client is SmartFTP. It supports FTP, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV, SSH, S3, and Terminal client. Visit SmartFTP Client Setup to download the latest version.

This latest version of SmartFTP has added support for Microsoft Windows 8.1.
