for files you need to download. Navigation with FTP Explorer is much like
that with Windows Explorer.

in the URL entry field and press the "Open" button. You can
open several sites at a time. Once you entered site parameters (login,
password), you can save them in the site manager ("Use for whole
server" option) and they will be inserted in input fields automatically

addresses are automatically saved in URL history. To clear URL history
use Tools->Clear URL history.
Navigation with FTP Explorer is much like that with Windows Explorer.

a site, with an error occurred while attempting to connect;
a folder, which contents has not been received yet;
a folder, which contents is being received at the moment;
a folder, which contents has been received;
a folder, with an error occurred while receiving folder contents.

in the list and press the "Download..." button or choose similar

FTP Explorer setup
You can specify maximum allowable number of errors, as well as whether
to clear or not the site list after quitting FTP Explorer.
In Favorites you can store the list of the most frequently visited sites
so that you won't have to enter addresses manually.
