Downloading large files off the internet is not new thing now and with increase in broadband speed it is possible to download Gigabytes of files from the internet in few seconds. However not every user has this kind of internet connection and for those users it is necessary to use download manger which allows them to resume file downloading process when connection broken.
There are several file download manager tools available, including free as well as paid one. It’s very unfortunate that Microsoft didn’t provide download manager like tool built into Windows OS itself.
Though late but finally Microsoft has come up with its own download manager, Microsoft Download Manager. The Microsoft Download Manager enables you to download files from the Internet in a more reliable and faster way than using a browser alone. Microsoft Download Manager supports following Windows OS and Browsers.
