Mega.NZ is probably the most popular and preferred file sharing website which is used by thousands of people all over the world.

Despite entering the market late, the team behind Mega have managed to capture the market and users with their feature-rich service. Nowadays, Mega is being used by almost everyone such as YouTubers, Bloggers, Individuals for the purpose of file sharing. The good thing is that Mega allows you to store large files and share it with as many people as you want without any limits.

But before diving into the topic straight away, let’s discuss more about this issue and see why it occurs. Generally sites like Dropbox, Gdrive provide one-click download facility for users, while on the other hand, Mega forces its users to download their client in order to download the files they’re looking for.

A lot of people have actually request Mega to remove this system, but apparently, it’s not going to change and we’ll have to deal with it.

Well, the good news is that we’ve managed to find a workaround to overcome this issue. In fact, the process of getting rid of this issue includes only a couple of steps which takes only a couple of minutes to perform. After going through all the steps properly, you will be able to download large size files from Mega without any issues.
