A Cool Download Manager!!!…by Microsoft!!
Did not know that such a tool was provided by Microsoft!!! Its a really cool tool, BTW. Microsoft Download Manager is a lightweight and easy-to-use tool that you may use to download files from the Internet. There are no complicated settings to configure and all you need to do is paste the file URL to begin the download process.
It can run minimized in the system tray and pops-up a unobtrusive notification every time a file download is complete or if the program has trouble downloading a particular file. Just like a common download manager, it will grab the files from the specified download URL.
However, the software can only handle files that are served over the HTTP protocol (no FTP) but it does support downloading of files that require authentication. It main intention was to help users download files from Microsoft sites but i tried with other sites and it works with them all, as long as they support http: protocol.
Microsoft Download Manager is compatible with all recent versions of Windows including XP, Vista and Windows 7.
