Having a library for all of your files is something that can be very important. Once you’ve downloaded a lot of files, one of the most difficult parts is actually being able to keep them all organised so that whenever you need one, you can just go straight in and find it. When you’ve got thousands of files listed in a directory it starts becoming time consuming, so in this article we’re going to be talking about the library feature included in our FrostWire download which tries to solve this problem.
Perhaps one of the most important things we should tell you about to start with is where you can find the library. It’s very easy – just open it up and then in the navigation menu of 4 tabs, just select the “Library” tab. This is where all of the magic happens – you’ll see a sidebar of different types of files that you may have obtained form the network and to the right of it, you’ll see all of the files relevant for that category. There are a few settings just below all of this too. You’ll be able to see it all yourself if you load the program and go into this part of the software.
When you download a file to your computer using this software, you may be wondering how you can get it added into your library so you can manage it using the methods we can describe. The answer to this is simple – you don’t need to add any files yourself, the software takes care of everything. Every time you download a file and it completes, you’ll find that relevant information is taken from it with no input required from you – so for a song, the name, artist and album title may be taken. This is then added to the library, you’ll be able to find it there immediately. It saves you a huge amount of time and works perfectly. We highly recommend that instead of trying to work out where the file is stored on your hard drive, you go into the library whenever you need something.
So how does finding a file actually work? Once you’ve gone into your library, you’ll need to select the type of media you want. The types you’ll find in FrostWire are “Audio”, “Video”, “Images” and “Programs”. There are more but these are the most common ones. You’ll find all of the data you’re looking for split up into these categories for you. You’ll also notice that there’s a search bar in the program which will go through your entire library looking for the keyword that you enter. This can be a great way of getting to something quickly if you’re in a rush and don’t want to look through everything.
In conclusion, using this client to manage all of your files is a great thing. It is a complete package – you can find what you want to download just by entering a few pieces of information. You can wait for it to download and then when it has, you’re able to access it just by taking a look in your library, it doesn’t get much more simple than this. We highly recommend that you install this onto your computer if you haven’t done so already, it’s a great piece of software that is being used by millions.
