The following menu items are visible when you right click on one or more items in the local browser pane.

Add to Queue

Use this command to add selected items to the transfer queue for uploading. You can also drag it/them to the Queue Window. When you are not connected to any FTP server at the moment you add item into transfer queue, the fields for destination path and host will be inserted "unknown", indicating that whenever a connection is established and the queue transfer is started, the current remote directory will be used. Of course you can change it using Edit Queue Entry in the context menu of Queue Window.

View/Open Selected

Use this command to open the selected file or folder.

If a folder is selected, TurboFTP opens the folder in a Windows Explorer window.
