Swish Navigates SFTP Connections In Windows Explorer

Windows: Opening up a dedicated FTP client just to find a file or two is a pain. Swish integrates your SFTP connections directly into Windows Explorer to save you the trouble.

Swish will install as a Windows Explorer extension and show up as a mounted drive on your system. Within this drive, you can add SFTP connections, and navigate them within Explorer. You’ll need to put in your password the first time you connect, but it will save it thereafter to make navigation even faster.

Unfortunately, Swish only works with SFTP connections, not FTP, WebDAV, or cloud storage services like most FTP clients support. If that’s all you need though, this will essentially replace any need you have for a standalone client.
