  2. On the user interface, you will see the Add URL button. If you want to download something just copy its URL from the address bar and paste it to the IDM’s Add URL button.
  3. If a login or authorization is still needed to download your file, just provide it. Tick the “Use Authorization” and put your login details.
  4. If you want to start the download immediately, just click on “Start/Resume” button.
  5. If you want to postpone the download you may click “Pause”. If you do not want the download to continue, click on the “Cancel” button.
  6. And if you want to remove the file and its URL, just click on the “Delete” button.
