Quick Start
OK, so you've installed FlashGet. Now, whenever your browser is asked to download a file, FlashGet will be launched automatically to download it. Click on OK and the download process will start.

If flashget can't start automatically, please see Browser Monitor settings or How add a download to FlashGet

If it can't download, look at the detail window to determine the problem. Usually it's because you're not using a Proxy Server in FlashGet. Because FlashGet can make use of proxy servers, you should configure a proxy server by going to the Tools menu then Options... and clicking the Proxy tab. Refer to FlashGet Options (Tools > Options... in the FlashGet menu) for further details.
