How do I download a file from the Internet

The size of the files you are allowed to download with Internet Explorer depends on which version of Internet Explorer you have. You cannot download files larger than 2 gigabytes (GB) in Internet Explorer 6 or lower, and you cannot download files larger than 4 GB in Internet Explorer 7.

There is no limit in Internet Explorer 8. To fix this problem, you can either configure a website dedicated to downloading large files, or you can download Internet Explorer 8.

Option 1: Configure a Website:
 
To configure a website dedicated to downloading large files, open your Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. How you find your IIS Manager depends on which version of Windows you have.
 
Click the "Start" menu on your computer and either click "Run" on that menu, or find it under "All Programs" and then "Accessories." In the "Run" text box, type "inetmgr" to open the IIS Manager.
 
Once you open your IIS Manager, right click somewhere on the website. This will open a box with "Properties" as one of the options. Click it. Once in "Properties," uncheck the box next to the "HTTP Keep-Alives Enabled" option. Then click "OK." You can then download your file.
 
Warning for Option 1:
 
When you uncheck the "HTTP Keep-Alives Enabled" option, you then need to establish a new Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) session each time you download a file.
 
TCP/IP is the basic communication language of the Internet. When you create a new TCP/IP each time you download, an overhead of TCP/IP is created and the download times will continually become slower.
 
Option 2: Download Internet Explorer 8:
 
Internet Explorer 8 does not have a limit to how large of a file you can download. To download this version, visit Microsoft.com and scroll down to "Popular Downloads." The first option listed is "Internet Explorer 8."
 
Click it. In the new window that pops up, an orange box will say "Make it yours" or "Download now" right underneath where it says "Windows Internet Explorer 8." Click this orange box and follow the directions that pop up.

Hi,

Downloading a file from the internet is easy. You can download the file directly or use a download manager. Downloading directly means you just need to go to the website where the file or application is located and then hit the file or click the Download Now link. Using a download manager will give you faster speed on downloading files. It will let you filter your download.

Thank you.

HOPE THIS WILL HELP :

In the below example we're using Microsoft Internet Explorer as the example because it is the most commonly used browser today. Although not all browsers use the same steps, following these steps should help answer many of your questions about downloading a file.
 
To download a file through a website, first click on the link for the file you wish to download, in some cases the website may automatically start the download process after waiting a few seconds.
 
Next, the browser should prompt you on what to do with the file. Unless you immediately wish to run the program, it is recommended you select the option to save the file and place the file somewhere you're going to remember. For Windows users we suggest saving the file to the desktop.
 
After the file has been downloaded, if the file is an executable file, double-click the file to start the setup of the program. Many times, however, the file is a compressed file and requires another program be run to extract the file's contents before the setup for the program can be run.
 
Finally, it is important to realize that files on the Internet may contain computer viruses; the best method in protecting yourself from computer viruses is to make sure your virus scanner is up to date. Additional information and help about computer viruses can be found on our virus help page.

Hello Santos,

There are various ways that you can use to download files from the internet. Each browser has a way that it will allow you to download files from the internet.

Firefox for example has a downloader whereby if you have a file that you want to download from the internet, it will queue the file so that you can view the progress of the file as it downloads. This is true for other browsers, though they may have different ways of doing the same.

But the above method of using browser downloaders may be too slow especially if you are downloading a large file. When the file is too large, you can use download accelerators and managers.

Regards,

Lee Hung
