How to Download Files Faster on PC
If you are having trouble downloading files because of slow Internet speed, there’s no need to fret. There are several methods that you can try to help lessen the download time. You can download files at least twice or even up to five times as fast than usual. Sounds pretty good, right? Speaking of which, this hub lists down three proven methods to speed up your downloads. Check them out below!
Clean your PC and fix the registry
Sometimes, it’s not the slow Internet that’s causing the problem. If there are no issues with your Internet speed, perhaps the problem lies on the computer itself. An outdated Windows system could slow down your downloads. Not only that, you also need to clean and fix your registry. The registry is where your computer keeps all of its system configurations including the download settings. If the settings are incorrect, it is likely for you to experience slow downloads.
To improve the download speed, you need to use a registry cleaner to fix and update the registry. There are free but reliable registry cleaners for Windows that you can use like CCleaner’s built-in registry cleaner.
Use a third-party download manager
One proven method to download files faster is by using a third-party download manager. You can use it instead of the built-in one provided by your browser. If you are experiencing slow downloads on your browser, try installing a third-party Internet download manager. There are tons of them online that offers accelerated download speeds and other value-added features like resuming and scheduling downloads.
Here are a few good examples of the best free download managers you can find online:
- Ninja Download Manager
- FDM (Free Download Manager)
Use a browser with a built-in download accelerator
If installing a third-party add-on or extension is not your cup of tea, you may want to consider using a different browser. You can use this browser just for sole purpose of downloading files. Chrome, for example, is a fast, secure and stable browser but not when it comes to file downloads. In this case, there are browsers like Citrio that offers faster download speeds. It's all thanks to its built-in download accelerator that is said to speed up your downloads up to 5 times faster than your current browser.
The choice is yours
Without good Internet, it will be difficult to download files faster on PC but you can always find ways to improve your download experience. Of course, these options are only ideal for users who download files occasionally. If you find the need to frequently download large files, perhaps it would be best to consider investing on a high-speed Internet plan.
