The Internet has created immediate access to items that we used to have to visit a store in order to purchase. You can now purchase movies as a download and not a DVD while still sitting in your pajamas. Online gaming is advancing with PC and Android Emulators. Premium Spotify subscribers can download music to play offline. These advancements in available entertainment media have brought on program applications to streamline the downloading process. One of these downloading program applications is Internet Download Manager, which assists in order to instantly download several items such as movies, songs, games in an organized, more efficient method.

How to Use Internet Download Manager

Go to your favorite site that you usually use to download your Movies, Songs, Games or Software. I have provided in the image below as an example of using IDM on YouTube:

Internet Download Manager will launch when you want to download something from a website that allows access to IDM. For example, on the image above you click on the button then IDM dialog box comes up automatically. If you want to download it fast, you can go to the download options in IDM and turn on the "limit speed" to increase the IDM download speed. Although the default speed is 10 k/b, you can increase it if the option is available on your PC.
