Internet Explorer’s Annoying Download Limit: Fixed

Lifehacker has a hugely helpful Registry fix that allows Internet Explorer 7 to have unlimited simultaneous downloads. See, IE7 only allows you to download two files at once, and makes you sit around like a dope waiting for one to finish before it allows you another. By changing this Registry key, you can increase that amount to unlimited, letting you download as you damn well please.

The Registry key is located at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings, you need to create a new 32-bit DWORD called MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server, set the value to 3, then create another DWORD called MaxConnectionsPerServer and again set it to 3. That’s it. Enjoy!
