How to use and download files with IDM 2017

On the main screen you can see a list of files you have downloaded previously. This list includes the size of the files, download description, download status, possible completion time, etc. Additional information is also available. You can change the order by clicking on the column header.


Control buttons such as "Add URL, Continue, Stop, Delete Full, Options, Schedule" are available on the file list. These buttons are clickable or non-clickable depending on the status of the file you are downloading.

By clicking on the "Suggest" button you can easily suggest the Internet Download Manager program to your friend.

You can start a new download by clicking the "Add Url" button. You can enter a new file address in the pop-up screen, or you can reselect an address you have used before. If you want to download username and password, you can define your login information for that site by ticking the "Use authorization" box.

If the address form has been passed, you will be prompted to "save as", in which case you can enter a comment / note for the file you want to download and choose where to save the file. If you want to cancel the download, just click the "cancel" button.

If downloading supports the server resume feature in this case, you can pause the downloading at any time using the "pause" / "continue" buttons and resume from where you left off at any time.

There are different options for starting downloads with Internet Download Manager;
