- Select where to install, choose which other programs you want to download (you can diable all) and start the installation
- From the torrent sites we wrote at the top of this article, choose which file you want to download
- A tiny file with a .torrent extension will be downloaded to your computer
- Open this file with uTorrent
- Movie, TV shows, music, or anything else will automatically start downloading

uTorrent – 64 bit or 32 bit?
Sice uTorrent is an extremely lightweight piece of software, there is really no need to care whether it is 64 bit and 32 bit. You can simply download 32 bit version, which works on any computer, and you won’t know the difference.
Are There Other Clients For Downloading Torrents?
Yes, there are many of them, but uTorrent is the only official client. Basically, there are a lot to choose from as long as they are downloading files comfortably and quickly, which uTorrent absolutely meets with minimum disk space and computer performance requirements.
Another reason why the choice of the client is basically just for comfort is that they all work on exactly the same principle and therefore it does not matter if you are using uTorrent and someone else some other client. You are still connecting and downloading and sharing files from one another.
For torrent downloads, we recommend that you keep in mind that if you are downloading a file, you are also automatically sharing it, which may infringe copyrights.
