The above screenshot appears to be a throwback to the 1990s,  but if you have been relying on the convenience, speed and flexibility of an external download manager you will appreciate the Edge browser’s latest extension.

Internet Download Manager (IDM) is a popular tool used to increase download speeds by up to 5 times, and can resume and schedule downloads. It features comprehensive error recovery and resume capability and will restart broken or interrupted downloads due to lost connections, network problems, computer shutdowns, or unexpected power outages.

The Microsoft Edge extension requires that IDM desktop application is installed. Integration module adds “Download with IDM” context menu item for the file links and displays Download panel over page-embedded multimedia content, providing various helper functions to the main application as well.

Internet Download Manager can be downloaded and installed from the official website here.

Find the extension in the Windows Store here.
