For those which are wondering how is this possible, the explanation is very simple: the application will try to split the item which you need to download in several segments and it will also work on multiple connections while grabbing these segments.
The installation procedure for this software is quite simple and will not create any problems even for those un-experimented users. You will be presented with a bunch of “next…next…finish” screens and that’s about it.

Several interesting and useful options are being offered by this application. For example, you will be able to choose the default folder in which your downloaded items will be placed. also, you will have the opportunity to see the size of each downloaded item and also the URL from which you have taken that particular object. This is common even for a standard web browser manager. However, there are some options which will not be seen too often in some common browsers.

So, where is the Internet Download Manager (IDM) serial number?
This is a problem which many readers of our website have met with. We shall detail a little bit the context of this issue for those readers which have just landed on our website. All applications which run under a Windows OS tend to crash. And that’s a fact. Sometimes, unfortunately, the only solution to remedy the problem is to uninstall the application which has crashed and re-install it. But, as you all know, during the installation process of any paid app, you will have to insert its serial number. When this code is lost, the tutorials on our website will help you to find it. The recovery process for this software is approximately the same, like in other cases.
1. Use a tool which will find your needed code.
The easiest way of getting your key combination back is to use a tool like the one we have shown in the Windows 8 Product Key recovery tutorial. Download it from the below mentioned link and install it:
Once installed, this app will display a box with two panels. In the left window you will be able to see a list that contains all the programs which have been set up on your computer. In that list click on the application you are interested in recovering its key. In the left window you will see, now, its code.

2. Look for it in Windows Registry
We are advising you to use this second method only if the first one has failed in providing you the needed key. That’s because this method involves some searching action into Windows Registry. IF you are an un-experimented user, this is not the place where you should edit or delete anything. This is a very sensible component of your OS, therefore we strongly advise to be very careful here.
a. Access the search field in the start menu and input the following command: “regedit”. Then, just press the enter button.
b. Now you will be able to see the Windows Registry menu. Look for the “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” folder and open it.
c. In the tree menu that will be displayed look for and open another folder: “Software”. This should contain another folder, again, which will be named after the producer of this software. Open it, too.
d. Here is the place where you should see one file which can be called “Internet Download Manager (IDM) Serial Number”. The code is there.
This is how you can find the lost or misplaced key for this great tool. As we have already asked you on all other pages of our website, please feel free to share your opinion with use, by posting a comment in the below mentioned form.
