Can always install FileZilla Server and configure it; it can be kind of a PITA to get working sometimes, tho.

That isn't that many steps though, like even for a novice it shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes of reading that and following along. Tbh I didn't even know you could host an FTP directly from W10 and what little I read seemed to be pretty streamlined.

I wouldn't really use Windows and the provided junk for FTP... Filezilla is fairly simple ya'know...
