How to Upload and Download Files on 4shared (with Pictures)
1Go to location where you will be downloading. Navigate through your 4shared folders by clicking on them until you’re in the folder where the files you want to download are located.


2 Select files. Tick the tick boxes on the files and folders to select them. You can select as many as you want.

3 Initiate the download. Click the “Download” button with the cloud icon on the header toolbar. If you’re downloading multiple files, they will be compressed into one B1 file.
A B1 file is an open archive file format, much like a zip file. The B1 file will be created in the background and it will be placed in your main 4shared folder.
If you’re downloading just one file, it will not be compressed into a B1 file. It will be downloaded as is.

4 Go to the download page. Files in 4shared cannot be directly downloaded from your account. Each file will have its download page. Select the B1 file that was created from Step 3 and click the “Download” button on the header toolbar. You will be directed to the file’s download page.


5 Download the file. On the file’s download page, click the “Download” button. You may have to wait a few seconds for the actual download link to appear. Once it does, click on it and your download will begin.

6 View the downloaded file. The file will be downloaded to your computer, into your default Downloads folder.
If it’s a B1 file, you have to extract it first in order to get the files inside.
