Downloading is simple. DAP makes it fast and simple. And YOU can make DAP extra fast and simple. Today’s post will teach you how you can configure DAP to best match your download habits. You’ll see how you can boost up your download experience and easily manage the files you download with just a few minor adjustments. Before we begin, make sure you have the latest version of Download Accelerator Plus (DAP). Now, let’s start off with a few shortcuts.
Download Video shortcut button
If you download videos a lot, you should get to know the Download Video shortcut button that is located at the top of DAP’s main window. This button is not only the easiest way to download videos, but it is also the fastest way to get your video in the format and quality that is right for you. When you attempt to download a video with the Download Video button, DAP fetches and displays additional file options for the video you chose to download. So even if your original link was a MP4 file, you may actually prefer to download a FLV file or another file with a smaller size. DAP gives you maximum options, so you download what you really want extra fast and simple.
Download MP3 shortcut button
If you know you want your video in MP3 format, you can save yourself time by directly clicking the Download MP3 shortcut button located at the top of DAP’s main window. DAP will download and immediately convert the video to MP3. It will even add it to your iTunes library so you can easily access it anytime.
Automatically sort your files
Sorting your downloaded files into categories will make it so much easier to manage files. So why not let DAP do it for you? Just click the Categorized downloading checkbox in DAP’s options window (Tools >> Options) and DAP will automatically sort your downloads into categories. You can use the existing categories or add new ones.
Download multiple files from a web page
If you have multiple files you wish to download from a single webpage, you can save time and let DAP download them all at once. Simply click the File menu on DAP’s main window, choose Import and select Html Web page. DAP will display a list of all the downloadable items on the page. Check the files you wish to download and click the download button.
DAP accelerates your downloads so you can download your files as fast as possible. Now that you know these extra tricks, you can make DAP work even faster and easier.
