Bookmark a Directory

Below you find a step by step guide, if you prefer you can watch our Bookmark a Directory video tutorial.

You can make it easier to reach frequently-used directories by creating bookmarks. A bookmark holds information for both a local and remote directory, and your directory navigation preferences. There are two types of bookmarks:

  • Global bookmarks can be used on multiple sites. Use these if you connect to a number of remote sites with the same directory structure where you want to put a bookmark. It’s essentially a relative path.
  • Site-specific bookmarks are used on one site only.

Note: Bookmarks contain information about the location, but they don’t contain connection
information like server address and login credentials. Connection information is stored in the Site Manager. To use a bookmark, first connect to a remote site, then select the bookmark.

To create a bookmark:

  1. Open a connection and navigate to the local and remote directories that you want to
    save in a bookmark.
  2. In the main menu, click on Bookmarks > Add bookmark…. Alternatively, press CTRL-B.
  3. Select either Global bookmark or Site-specific bookmark from the Type option group.
  4. Enter a name for the bookmark. This will be displayed in the Bookmark menu.
  5. Check the Local directory field. If you want to change it, enter a local directory or click Browse… to navigate to the desired local directory.
  6. Check the Remote directory field. Note that it doesn’t contain all server and drive information; just the directory path post-connection. Modify if needed, but be careful to keep the same format.
  7. To automatically enable synchronized browsing when you select this bookmark (see
    Synchronizing browsing of local and remote directories), tick the Use synchronized browsing checkbox.
  8. To automatically enable directory comparison when you select this bookmark (see
    Comparing local and remote files), tick the Directory comparison checkbox.
  9. Click on OK.

To use a bookmark:

  1. Open a connection to the remote server.
  2. In the main menu, click on Bookmarks and the name of the bookmark you want to use.
