FTP: Pass user and pass in url to Windows Explorer

=========
QUESTION
——— 
I want to provide our users a quick url to access our FTP site without them having to type in their username and password. Is this possible?

 

=========
ANSWER
———
Yes – simply have them type the following into the address bar of Windows Explorer: 

ftp://USER:PASS@FTPHOST

 

To provide a shortcut file on their desktop to that path and make it open in Windows Explorer rather than Internet Explorer, right click the desktop, select New, Shortcut

In the location field, enter the following: 
Explorer.exe ftp://USER:PASS@FTPHOST
