Change the Number of Simultaneous Downloads in Chrome

This problem must be a common problem to many user who are habituated to do more downloading from the internet.
Recently, while i was downloading big sized files from chrome, i came across this problem. I had a pretty good net connection which, on average, my speed will be about 500 kbps. I tried to download 13 files simultaneously from net through P2P servers like rapidshare, mediafire etc. and to my astonishment, download speed is about hardly 50 kbps. Then i wondered what will it be if i download each file individually. I cancelled and tried again. The speed now was 600 kbps. Then this thought struck in my mind. What if i can queue the downloads in chrome as in various download managers. And one more thing, i prefer chrome to other download accelerator because i encountered a problem using IDM when downloading from local host. My system got struck and the explorer says 'not responding'. So, i searched the many blogs and finally came to this best solution. Hope it solves this problem.

Step 1:Open Run command by pressing (windows + R) or start -> run.Press regedit and press enter.

Step 2:
Click “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” in the left pane of the Registry Editor window. Navigate to the “Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings” value.


Step 3:
Click the “Edit” menu bar option. On the drop-down list, click “New,” then “DWORD (32-bit) Value.” After the “New Value #1” text box appears in the right pane of the window, replace the default text with “MaxConnectionsPerServer” and press the “Enter” key



Step 4:
Double-click the new MaxConnectionsPerServer key in the right windowpane. Enter a number greater than five in the “Value Data” box. For instance, if you want to download ten files at once, enter “10” in the box and click the “OK” button.


Step 5:
Create another DWORD (32-bit) Value key using the same technique you used to create the MaxConnectionsPerServer key. Rename the new key “MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server.”

Step 6:
Double-click the “MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server” key. Enter the same number you entered for the MaxConnectionsPerServer key in the “Value Data” box and click “OK.”


Step 7:
Click “File,” then “Exit” to close the Windows Registry Editor. Restart the computer.

Step 8:
Launch Google Chrome on your PC. Chrome now allows concurrent downloads up to the value you specified in the Windows Registry.
