Accelerating Your Downloads
Open a copy of Internet Explorer and browse to a website from which you
frequently download a lot of files. Free Download Manager integrates with your
web browser so that when you click a file to download, it automatically takes
over. Follow these steps to download files with the Free Download Manager:
1. When you click a link to download a file, the Free Download Manager
takes over and prompts you, as shown in Figure 17-6. This is where you
select where you want the file to be downloaded and other advanced
settings. Locate the Advanced button on the bottom of the window and
click it. This brings up the Advanced Properties window.
2. You can adjust the number of chunks into which the download
accelerator splits the file. Locate the Sections group on the Connection tab and
increase the maximum number, as shown in Figure 17-7. I like to set my
maximum number to 15. When you are finished, click OK to return to the
Add Download window.
3. After you specify the Save To folder, make sure the Start property is set
to Automatically and click OK.
