How can I download more than two files at once using Internet Explorer?

Tuesday, January 11, 2000

The people at Microsoft in their infinite wisdom have set a limit on the maximum number of simultaneous connections you are permitted to make when using their homegrown browser. This limit can be exceeded by adding the following details to your registry...


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server"=dword:00000010 "MaxConnectionsPerServer"=dword:00000008

A quick way to achieve this would be to copy this information into a plain text file, save it with a .reg extension and double-click its icon.

Now you'll be able to download up to ten files at once. This should be more than enough for anyone, but if you're feeling especially greedy you can modify the transfer limit figure yourself in Notepad before saving it.
