You've seen the the Quick Connect Window. That window will allow you to quickly connect to your FTP server. However, you might find that you'd like to have a few more features. That is where the Site Manager comes in.

Core FTP's Site Manager will not only store the connection details for your FTP server, it will give you a lot of useful options.

Creating automatic folder navigation in the Site Manager in Core FTP

Perhaps you find yourself constantly navigating to the same folder over and over every time you connect to your FTP server. For those cases, Core FTP has a bookmark feature for you.

In the Directory/Folder page of the Advanced Site Settings window, set a default Local Start folder. What this will do is automatically navigate you to this folder when you connect to your FTP server. You can specify a Remote Start folder too if you would like.
