The program uTorrent uses Torrents to help you download files from other users, such as movies or games. Unlike more standard file-sharing programs, such as LimeWire, Torrent programs such as uTorrent make use of the computers of many other users all downloading the same file at once. This means that your download will usually be faster than if you just got the file from one person. Additionally, there is a way in uTorrent to get even faster speeds using uTorrent's controls.
- Skill level:
Click "Start" in Windows and select "uTorrent" under the "All Programs" list to open the program.
Right-click on a Torrent you're currently downloading that you want to get to go faster.
Select "Bandwidth Allocation" from the drop-down menu there. Three options, "High," "Medium," and "Low," appear.
Select "High." This tells uTorrent to use more of your Internet resources on the Torrent. As a result, the downloading file will increase in speed.
