    Hello Raddy, Video is helpful. Thanks for it. How do you remove the ftp sources from the file explorer after finish editing? Thanks.

      Hey Juanda, I am glad that the video was helpful You can remove the FTP sources the way you add them. Press F1 on your keyboard and search for "ftp-simple: Config - FTP connection settings" then just remove the FTP details that you don't want. The only way to be safe is to remove them. Clearing the editor history won't help. If you want to clear the editor history too for some reason you can press F1 and search for "Clear Editor: History". It doesn't seem to work very well for me. I hope this helps Raddy
