1.First you need to download Winscp to your Windows workstation or server
2.make sure that your cPanels users have the ability to use SSH.you will need to log into your cPanel control panel and click on  "Manage Shell Access" and choose your account and specify "Jailed Shell" for the SSH ability.
3.open Winscp, click on "New" and specify the IP Address / Host Name, User, Password and SSH port if you changed it and click "Login".
4.Winscp will proceed to connect to your server and will now display a screen, similar to an FTP program. You can drag and drop files from the local connection to your remote connection and vice versa.   
6.When you have finished with your connection, go to Session and click on disconnect.
