Note: Upgrade to the latest version of the AOL Desktop software to take advantage of great new features!

AOL Download Manager helps you easily and conveniently download and manage email attachments. Using the download manager, you can:

  • schedule the download to complete later
  • select the default download folder to save all your downloaded attachments
  • customize your download manager settings to automatically display images after the download
  • find and open downloaded attachments

You can open the AOL Download Manager window when you are offline or online. However, you will not be able to open it when you are signed on as a Guest.

To open the AOL Download Manager window:
  • If you are offline, click the File menu, and then click Download Manager.
  • If you are online, go to AOL Keyword: Download Manager. Please note that this keyword can be accessed only within the AOL software. However, the Keyword feature is not available in AOL Desktop v10.1.

WARNING: Never download email attachments from unknown senders. Downloaded files can contain objectionable content, computer viruses, or Trojan Horse programs that can damage files on your computer and compromise the security of your AOL account. The AOL service automatically scans email attachments for malicious files and repairs the files whenever possible. To learn more about computer viruses and get virus protection for your computer, go to AOL Keyword: Security or http://discover.aol.com/security.
