I don't know if this is a common problem. The pretty pathetic search system cannot find anything on this topic and it's not in the brief FAQ and unhelpful Wiki.

My server connects fine. The server connection is correct and everything in FileZilla is configured. I have the latest version but I cannot download my files off my server. I right click on the index.html file that I want to edit and "Download" is grayed out. I try to drag the file onto my desktop: it doesn't work. Why can't I download the files?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Have a good hard look to the left and realise where you are planning to download the files to. Then slap yourself on the forehead.

And, in case of Vista, many directories are protected, AFAIK the Desktop is amongst them.

OMG! I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T TRY THAT! *SLAPS SELF ON FORHEAD!

Thank you for your help. I am really used to being able to drag files onto the desktop as I did with SmartFTP but they screwed that up by making you buy it and making it too complicated. I'm happy with Filezilla. Free and easy!

Thanks again!

If you don't have a valid directory selected at the local side, the Download option is grayed out. Simple as that.
