    @skinux I believe @alexm didn't understand your question.

    I guess all you want is to keep downloading several search results without having to go back and forth between the search and transfer skins.

    There's a setting for this.

    Go to
    Settings > Notifications and Other

    And then uncheck the option that says:

    "Show Transfers On Download Start"

    You'll then be able to start downloads without switching away from the search result screen.

    Hope this helps


  • Hi @skinux In case you are running FrostWire on desktop please go to FrostWire main menu 'View' and select 'Search/Transfer split screen' then restart FrostWire and you should see Search and downloads within the same screen (old style FrostWire).

    Let us know If that helps.


  • Thanks, guys for the knowledge. Its really helpful thread.
