Here's How to Download Many Files at Once Without Hassle, Let's Listen!
Geekers -  Almost all files on the internet can be downloaded, except for personal files such as files in cloud storage that are not shared with anyone or photos on social media whose albums are locked. Commonly downloaded file types are PDF, EPUB and MOBI files which are commonly used for ebooks, audio files such as MP3 and WAV, videos downloaded from YouTube or other video sharing sites in MP4 or MKV format, EXE files which are contains installers for various types of software, as well as ZIP and RAR.

How to download files is not difficult. After clicking the link, the file will be downloaded immediately and stored in the default folder. Each browser also provides an option to display the Save As dialog box before the download begins so that users can rename files and save files to other folders.

Even though it's easy, sometimes you need patience when downloading files. The reason is, the length of time it takes to download files is not always the same. The determining factor is the size of the file itself, each user's internet connection, and the server that provides the file. The bigger the file size and the slower the internet connection, the longer the download will take. Even a problematic server can cause download speeds to be much lower than usual.

How to Download Many Files at Once Easily

Files can be downloaded one by one, can also be downloaded many at once. Let's say there are 10 files that need to be downloaded, instead of doing it in turn, it's better to download all the files at the same time.

The number of files that you can download simultaneously is usually not limited. As long as the hard drive capacity is sufficient, you can download as many files as possible. Here are the steps on how to easily download multiple files at once.

1. To be able to download many files at once, we can take advantage of an add-on or extension called DownThemAll which can be downloaded via this link (Google Chrome users) and this link (Mozilla Firefox users). In this tutorial I use Google Chrome. Next, select Add to Chrome.

5. DownThemAll will grab the links on that page. Keep in mind, not all of these links are download links. You have to do a filter first, for example, if you want to download a Windows application, the downloaded file usually has the .exe or .msi format (in some cases, there are also .zip or .rar).

Therefore, in the Filter column, you select Software. You can also check which files you want to download. If so, you click the Download button.

That's how to download many files at once with the help of an extension called DownThemAll. If you choose to download files one by one, you will have to repeat the download steps for each file many times. Click a link, wait for the download to finish, then click the next link, wait again, and so on. As a result, you may find it difficult to concentrate on the task at hand.

Another case if you choose to download many files at once. All files are put in the download list, then let all the files download until it's finished. Because all the files you want to download are included from the start, you can concentrate fully on work or leave the computer to sleep.
