I want to open WinSCP GUI and have it open a stored session automatically, need it for a Windows shortcut to a stored session.

I was hoping this could be done using a commandline option.

Been looking at the commandline option documentation with no success to find the right option.

The very first line in the command-line syntax:

winscp.exe site|workspace|folder

So, simply pass a name of your stored site as the only parameter to WinSCP. If the site is stored in a folder, the folder must be specified too, like folder/site.
