  • Step 1

    Minimize the number of things you are trying to download. If you are trying to download more than one file at once, you're not only going to slow down the process but your computer as well. Wait for one file to finish before starting another.
  • Step 2

    Set your computer aside for a lengthy download. If you're surfing the web, you may slow down your Internet connection and keep the file from downloading at its maximum speed.
  • Step 3

    Connect your computer directly to your router rather than using WiFi. This will help you avoid interruptions in your connection and download your files at the fastest speed possible.
  • Step 4

    Limit the number of computers using your WiFi if you are using a wireless Internet connection to download your files. The more people using your network, the slower your downloads will be.
