So, i have link on ftp in my page. When user click on this link he's relocate on ftp which open in browser. Is it possible to create behavior such as opening ftp links in Windows Explorer?

it's not about shortcuts it's about opening ftp after click on link in browser. But idea is the same – Ishikawa Yoshi Jun 22 '12 at 15:02

You could script it via a batch file and the command line FTP client, but you will need a client. Regular windows explorer doesn't have a way to connect to an FTP site by itself.

in other words browser can't redirect you to ftp in windows explorer by default. Ok. – Ishikawa Yoshi Jun 22 '12 at 11:20
  1. Start Menu->Computer
  2. On the left pane: right-click computer-> add network location
  3. Follow the wizard and type in your ftp location (
  4. Right click the network location and send to your desktop as shortcut.
