To access an FTP via Windows' File Explorer, you will need to open a new File Explorer window.
The File Explorer can be found a number of ways; most commonly it is found on the Task Bar at the bottom of the screen.
Navigate to This PC in the left-hand file menu. Right-click anywhere on the blank space within the file display section and choose Add a network location from the contextual menu that opens.
This will open the Add Network Location Wizard. Once that appears, press the Next button.
Click on the Choose a custom network location option, then the Next button.
The next window will prompt for the network address. This is where you will copy the FTP URL provided to you via email. Then, press the Next button.
Please Note: If you are looking to add Congressional MARC files, please contact us.
The next window will ask what you would like to name this new network location. This name is what will display on the left-hand file menu of your File Explorer windows, as you will see below. Once finished, press the Next button.
The next window will have the message the location has been successfully created. Then, press the Finish button.
The FTP folder will then open and display your MARC files in the file display section. You can also navigate back to this folder by selecting it in the left-hand file menu.
