How Do I Associate Magnet Links With Utorrent?

If you’re a fan of downloading torrents, you’ve probably come across magnet links before. These special links allow you to download files without having to first download a “.torrent” file. Magnet links are more convenient than traditional torrents, and they work just as well with uTorrent.

Here’s how to get started using magnet links with uTorrent. First, make sure that you have the latest version of uTorrent installed. Then, find a magnet link for a file that you want to download.

You can usually find these links on popular torrent sites. Once you have the magnet link, open up uTorrent and click on the “Add Torrent from URL” option in the File menu. Paste in the magnet link into the box that appears and click “OK”.

The file will begin downloading immediately. You can check its progress by looking at the Status column in uTorrent’s main window. When it’s done, the file will be available in your default downloads folder (or wherever else you’ve set uTorrent to save files).

How Do I Set Utorrent As My Default Browser on Mac?

2. In the ‘Default web browser’ drop-down menu, select uTorrent. 3. Close System Preferences and you’re all set! Now, whenever you click on a web link, it will open in uTorrent instead of your usual browser.

Why Wont My Magnet Links Work on Utorrent?

If you’re having trouble getting magnet links to work with uTorrent, there are a few things you can try. First, make sure that you’re using the latest version of uTorrent. If you’re not, download and install the latest version from the official uTorrent website.

Once you’ve done that, check your firewall and antivirus settings. Some firewalls and antivirus programs can block magnet links from working properly. If that’s the case, add uTorrent to your firewall or antivirus program’s exceptions list.

If neither of those solutions works, it’s possible that your ISP is blocking magnet links. This is rare, but some ISPs have been known to do this. You can usually get around this by using a VPN service like Private Internet Access or TunnelBear.

Finally, if none of those solutions work, it’s possible that there’s something wrong with the tracker you’re trying to use. Try switching to a different tracker or downloading the torrent file directly from the website where you found it.
