Step 1 – Download uTorrent

The first thing you need to download torrents from Torrentz2 is to install uTorrent (or any other torrent client). uTorrent is widely considered the best software available to both download and share torrent files, so it’s the one we’ll discuss here.

uTorrent has a free version and a pro version.

If you need the pro version, you’ll have to pay to download it. However, the free version will work fine for downloading torrents. uTorrent is considered the best in this regard because it has the following features:

  • You can pause your download and resume it at a later time.
  • If your computer turns off, you can still resume the download when it restarts without affecting the download.
  • You can transfer the data you’re downloading from one computer to another even when the download hasn’t been completed.

How To Download uTorrent

  • If you’re ready to start, click here to begin downloading uTorrent.
  • After downloading the file, double-click it and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
  • Click the Finish button on the last screen of the installation.
  • Since you don’t need to start uTorrent manually for it to run you can uncheck Launch uTorrent before clicking Finish on the last installation screen, as shown below.

Step 4 – Choose Your Favorite Subcategory

Every category also has subcategories. For example, the action movie category has subcategories like science fiction, kung-fu, Asian action movies, etc. To choose your favorite:

  • Click on your choice of a file from the listed titles to begin your download. For example, Asian.Action.Movies.Pack.RoSubbed-FileList (download torrent) – TPB is the third on the list. If that’s what you’re looking for, click on it. Clicking it may pop up a dialogue box that will request your approval to allow uTorrent to handle your download. If that happens, do the following:
  • Click Allow to launch uTorrent.
  • If you don’t want to see the dialogue box in the future, click on Always open magnet links before clicking on Allow.
