Start wifi transfer "server" directly

Hi all,

the wifi transfer plugin opens a simple WebDAV server when starting it within total commander (Copy > via WIFI).
Is there a way to directly start this server (incl display of QR code) directly? - e.g. via shortcut or intent with specific parameters?

My use case:
I'm the "family admin" of our family, and my 82 year old dad asked me, how he can easily transfer images from his computer to his mobile.
"With total commander of course" I thought... but my dad is in an age now, where people do not learn new stuff easily, so I need to setup this solution veeeery simple.
I already added him a button in his Windows Total Commander that starts the QR code scanning. Now I need a very simple solution that just starts the wifi transfer server within a certain directory.
Any ideas how to do this?!

Thanks and bye...

Yes, just start the server as usual, then click on the arrow button in the title bar. It creates a link in the Android launcher which shares the same files and folders as when you created the link.
