Setting your preferences in FlashFXP



Setting your preferences in FlashFXP

Click Options at the top of the FlashFXP window

This tutorial assumes you already have FlashFXP and have it running on your computer, but not connected to another server

Now let's learn how to set preferences in FlashFXP

Then select Preferences

Click the Connection tab

This is the main preferences window, where there are several options to choose from

Keep in mind though, that most of these options are pre-set by FlashFXP, and do not need to be changed

Therefore, only change those options which you know are safe to change.... and we'll show you some of those now

If you wish, you can change the timeout, retry delay, and retry count settings here

Click the Options tab

Unless you really know what you're doing, there isn't anything you should change here

Click the Transfer tab

These settings are in place to help you avoid deleting files by accident, and should be left in the default settings

Select the Advanced tab

For the most part, the transfer mode should be left as auto, unless you've been given specific instructions to transfer files in either ACSII or Binary modes

Select the Sounds tab

You'll typically want to have show hidden files selected, so that you can see all files including .htaccess files

Select the Display tab

With FlashFXP you have the ability to assign sound effects to specific events

To do so, simply select the event you want to assign a sound to.....

Then locate a sound file on your computer..... that's it!

Click here

There are several display options you can choose that will customize the look and feel of FlashFXP to your liking

You can choose how to display files sizes as well

When finished, click OK

Select the View menu item

Then Options..

Click OK

Finally, you can change the entire look of your FlashFXP by modifying the colors

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to set your preferences in FlashFXP, and how to customize it's look to suit you
