How to Increase the Number of
Simultaneous Downloads in Internet Explorer
By default, MSIE limits
you to two downloads at a time (with one in the queue). This will keep the
download speeds reasonable. However, if you have a fast
connection (such as 1.5Mbps cable modem or DSL connection), you can increase
the number. Here's how:
Click Start | Run and type
regedit to open the Registry Editor.
Navigate to HKEY CURRENT
In the right pane, click an empty space and select
New and then DWORD value.
Name the new value MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server
Right click the new value and select Modify.
Under Base, select Decimal.
In the Value data field, type the number of
simultaneous connections you want to allow.
Repeat steps 3-8, this time creating a value called MaxConnectionsPerServer.
Close the Registry Editor.
will be able to run more downloads at a time.
