How to make WinSCP a mobile application.

WinSCP is a fabulous piece of free software for uploading and downloading via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to various servers. I do this a lot supporting clients and their websites. The program itself does a lot lot more such as downloading files for editing. Once the file has been edited or closed it automatically uploads the new version to the server. Great for quick edits or updates. 

I have 3 locations where I work - upstairs in my office/music room, downstairs in the workshop or out on the road with my trusty DELL. How do you ensure that your desktop appears the same at each location? Google Drive helps here which syncs files over several computers. I created a folder in Google Drive /WinSCP and copied .INI file from the application installation folder to it. I then created a shortcut to WinSCP and changed Properties > Target  to

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" /ini="C:\Users\yourusername\Google Drive\WinSCP\winscp.ini"

Do this on every machine and the same INI file is used on all PCs. You might have made changes out in the field but when you get home all the changes will be reflected over all devices.
