www.internetdownloadmanager.com/features2.html

Download Speed Acceleration
Internet Download Manager will accelerate downloads by up to 5 times due to its smart dynamic file segmentation technology. Unlike other download managers and accelerators, Internet Download Manager segments downloaded files dynamically during the download process, and it reuses available connections without additional connect and login stages to achieve the best possible acceleration performance.

Download all file types from your favorite websites
After installing the "IDM integration module" browser extension, just continue surfing the Internet, and you will be amazed at how easy is to download everything you want from your favorite websites.

All popular browsers are supported including portable versions.
IDM integrates seamlessly into Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari, MSN Explorer, AOL, Mozilla Firebird, Avant Browser, Maxthon, and all other popular browsers to automatically handle your downloads.

Easy downloading with one click
When you click on a download link in a browser, IDM will take over the download and accelerate it. You don't need to do anything special, just browse the Internet as you usually do. IDM will catch your downloads and accelerate them. IDM supports HTTP, FTP, HTTPS, and MMS protocols.

Under Options and download

Dark theme
IDM's dark theme displays dark surfaces across the majority of its UI. It was designed as a supplemental mode to the default (or light) theme. The dark theme reduces the luminance emitted by your screen, while still meeting minimum color contrast ratios. It helps to improve visual ergonomics by reducing eye strain, adjusting brightness to current lighting conditions, and facilitating screen use in dark environments while conserving power.

Dark Mode is only supported for windows 10  (This option is not available in Windows 7)
Under the Menu/View, there is a Dark mode support option.

How to configure Dark and standard theme:-

Dynamic segmentation
Internet Download Manager has optimized file download logic. IDM divides downloaded files into file segments dynamically, unlike other download accelerators that divide downloaded files in segments once just before the download process starts. Dynamic segmentation gives a significant download performance improvement. When file download starts, it's unclear how many connections may be opened. When a new connection becomes available IDM finds the largest segment to download and divides it in half. This new connection starts downloading files from half of the largest file segment. IDM minimizes the time needed for negotiations with servers and keeps all connections busy.

Download Resume
Internet Download Manager will resume unfinished downloads from the place where they left off. Comprehensive error recovery and resume capability will restart broken or interrupted downloads due to lost or dropped connections, network problems, computer shutdowns, or unexpected power outages.

Built-in Scheduler
Internet Download Manager can connect to the Internet at a set time, download the files you want, disconnect, or shut down your computer when it's done. You can also synchronize changes using periodic synchronization of files. It's possible to create and schedule several download queues for downloading or synchronization.

[Image: a1Jvy1T.png]

IDM includes web site spider and grabber
IDM downloads all required files that are specified with filters from websites, for example, all pictures from a website, subsets of websites, or complete websites for offline browsing. It's possible to schedule multiple grabber projects to run them once at a specified time, stop them at a specified time, or run periodically to synchronize changes.

Customizable Interface
You may choose the order, buttons, and columns to appear on the main IDM window. There are several different skins for the toolbar with different button styles. All skins can be downloaded from IDM home site. Also, users can design their own skins.

Skins:-

Quick update
Quick update may check for new versions of IDM and update IDM once per week. The quick updates feature lists all new features added to the latest version and asks a user if he wants to update IDM to the latest version.

Download limits
Progressive downloading with quotas feature limits downloading to a defined number of megabytes per hour. The feature is useful for connections that use fair access policy (or FAP) like Direcway, Direct PC, Hughes, etc.

[Image: dJKx8qn.png]

Automatic Antivirus checking
Antivirus checking makes your downloads free from viruses and trojans. IDM can automatically run a scanner on download completion, like AdAware, Avast, Spybot, AVG Anti-Virus, McAfee, Norton Internet Security, Norton 360, SpywareBlaster, CCleaner, and others to protect users from harmful downloaded files.

from the link:-  Please note that for antiviruses that have some kind of real-time protection it is not necessary to add any settings in IDM. They will scan all downloaded files automatically.

Simple installation wizard
Quick and easy installation program will make necessary settings for you, and check your connection at the end to ensure trouble-free installation of Internet Download Manager.


IDM supports many types of proxy servers
For example, IDM works with Microsoft ISA, and FTP proxy servers.

IDM supports main authentication protocols: 
Basic, Negotiate, NTLM, and Kerberos
Thus IDM can access many Internet and proxy servers using login name and password.

Drag and drop
You may simply drag & drop links to IDM, and drag & drop downloaded files out of Internet Download Manager.

Categories-Programs change folder

Windows operating system and programs get installed on your C drive/partition.
If you have an additional Drive or Data partition you can use it as a data drive/partition, separating 
C for windows\programs
D  E  or F for DATA
Many people have a number of drives and and partitions.
If my windows system fails or can't boot or I need to re-install, my data will be on the separate drive.
This can then be easily be backed up to an external drive.

I will show you how to move the default downloads for IDM to my choice of Data drive.
Repeat the process for the other categories.

Be aware Fake Chrome extension

The fake IDM chrome extensions have been pulled from the play store. I am still posting this information 
to inform the dangers of extensions in the play store.


Be aware:-
Fake Chrome extension -    Internet Download Manager has 200,000 installs
promo2day article
bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/fake-chrome-extension-internet-download-manager-has-200-000-installs

The IDM extension is hidden at the play store. It can not be found using the search funtion.
The extension is called IDM Integration module and can only be accessed by the direct link listed.

Real Extension
Ensure you add the real IDM extension.
It is called:-      IDM Integration module.

Hide and Unhide Speed Limiter Tab

I managed to have the Speed  Limiter tab disappear.
I normally have a speed limit set at a low KB/s.  Then when I want a specific download to download quickly I adjust that specific setting to no limit of a higher download rate.

Example:- Set the Basic Global settings of 44KB/s for all downloads and adjust individually other downloads. Therefore overriding global default I had set.

In Options, Download then click edit. Tick Show Speed Limiter Tab
