uTorrent, also known as µTorrent, is an application which allows you to download files using BitTorrent, a file-sharing transfer protocol. You download files by first obtaining a small torrent file which gives uTorrent a list of sources for the main file to be downloaded. Once uTorrent completes the download of the main file, you can instruct it to either remove the torrent from the queue or remove and delete the torrent file altogether. You can perform either of those tasks in just a few steps.
