  1. Download Microsoft Download Manager. Manage all of your downloads with this simple program.
  2. I would to disable the Download Manager in Internet Explorer. It is of absolutely no value to me and just gets in the way. When I'm at work and giving a PowerPoint presentation in slide-show mode and click on a link to a document in SharePoint, my audience gets to see the damn Download Manager instead of displaying the document that I want to show.

Download managers are already playing a key role in our lives, so it's no surprise that Microsoft joined the club of companies working on this kind of software solutions with its very own app. Called simply 'Microsoft Download Manager', the tool designed by the Redmond-based software giant is supposed to be a simple way to download files from the Internet with pause/resume capabilities and something extra.

Good but far from being a pro

Unfortunately however, Microsoft Download Manager is far from what we're seeing in today's download managers, as it provides just a few options, but it lacks most popular goodies.

The interface is very simple and easy to use, in the pure Microsoft way, so you should have absolutely no problem in using it.

Lacks several basic and advanced features

On the other hand, the number of features it includes is quite disappointing. It does support pausing and resuming downloads, proxy servers, automatic retries and multiple connections at the same time, but it lacks so much more.

For example, there's no browser integration, which means that in order to start a new download you have to manually add the link. There's no clipboard monitoring tool, no floating window, it doesn't even show the download speed.

Getting stuck along the way

Plus, sometimes the application doesn't start the download, although everything worked okay in other download manager with the exact same link. Not to mention that it often happened to get download errors all of a sudden.

The good thing about Microsoft Download Manager is its simplicity and it's pretty clear that users like this kind of applications because they are extremely easy to use.

To end with

So, as a conclusion, it's hard to consider Microsoft Download Manager a powerful rival for today's download managers. It only comes equipped with an easy to use interface, leaving a whole lot more to be desired, considering various reference points are already providing what this application lacks.
