  2. Download Win-SSHFS release v1.5.12.8 zip file, extract it to a folder can execute.

    Note: currently v1.5.12.9 release has symbolic link bug.
  3. Run WinSshFS.exe which is in that extracted folder, create settings like following example: win_sshfs
  4. Click Mount in setting window right most button or in system tray menu: win_sshfs_mount
  5. And you will see a virtual driver and has the mounted folder as the setting "Mount folder" specified in File Explorer window.

And be sure to unmount when you want to disconnect the virtual file system:
