Windows doesn't come with a good FTP program built in. Fortunately you can download and install Filezilla FTP server on Windows, which is a free, highly configurable FTP server.
One of the small annoyances of it though is that it will pop up in your face every time you start a new session on the server by RDP.
There is an easy fix for this though!
The easy way
Simply go to ' Settings ' -> ' Miscellaneous ' and Check the box ' Start Minimized '.
The harder way
If the easy way just doesn't cut it for you, you can do it the harder way - through registry keys (You'll need to have administrator rights to do it this way).
To do this, click ' Start ' and type ' regedit '. In regedit, navigate the tree:
On a x86 System:
On a x64 System:
You should find a ' FileZilla Server Interface ' entry. Delete the key and that's it! This will stop the interface from popping up for ALL RDP sessions and accounts.
NOTE: Disabling the interface does NOT stop the FTP server from running. The Filezilla service will still load and run the FTP server regardless if the interface has loaded or not.
