Next, a split window screen will be launched.  The window on the left is a picture of your current directory structure on your local computer.  The window on the right is a picture of your current directory structure on the computer you connected to.  Drag and drop files from one window to the next to copy files back and forth between the two computers.  Close the window to exit WinSCP.
