The DFS Downloader is a small file download application which allows DF Studio account holders and Download Messenger recipients to download multiple original files. This native desktop application, available for macOS (10.8+), Windows (7+), and Linux, was designed to simplify and streamline the download process.
1. Download the latest version of DF Studio Downloader from dfstudio.com/support
2. Double click the downloaded file to unzip.
3. Move the application to the computer’s Applications folder.
Once installed, clicking the Download link in DF Studio will automatically launch the application and prompt for a download location. DF Studio Messenger URLs may also be pasted directly into the application, using the “Open URL” option from the File menu. The app provides download progress information, such as the current download rate and a running total of the data downloaded. No additional software must be installed (e.g. Java is not required) and the application is signed with a secure certificate.
For detailed steps to update an existing installation of the DFS Downloader application, see Uninstall and Upgrade the DFS Downloader App.
If DFS Downloader is Incompatible
DFS Downloader is not required to download individual files. See Download Individual Files.
For users running operating systems older than Mac OS X 10.8, a link to the older Java Web Start version is still available. To download multiple files from DF Studio, see Download Multiple Files Without DFS Downloader.
