..... and our remote server files in Demo345.com are displayed in the window here on the right

Let's navigate to the public_html folder

It is in here that we want to upload some files

Select the files we want to upload here in our local computer window.....

Hold down the CTRL key to select multiple files for uploading

When ready, click the Upload icon here to start transferring the files to our remote server

Highlight the favorite.htm file and delete it

Click the File menu

Click Operations.....

Then click Delete
