Is there a way to open multiple files at once with the new download manager?

Posted

It was possible to do this with the old one by right-clicking and selecting "open", but I haven't been able to find a way to make it work with the new one.

Hi, If you have more than one file downloading it will share the network bandwidth, but each download will open when the download is complete.

Is it possible to shift select multiple files in the Download Manager?

I looked at the download section of the Library dialog, which you can open using either:

  • Show All Downloads
  • Ctrl+j

I couldn't figure out any way to open multiple items in one step. I can select multiple items, but... no way to launch them. Seems you need to double-click or press Enter to open a single selected item, and repeat for each item you want to open.
