Progress Window

When you add a new download, the Progress window is automatically launched by the task scheduler. Each new download is added to the Progress window list. This prevents many progress windows on the screen. If this window is missing (disabled, closed, or for another reason), it can be opened from Context Menu. While the file is downloading, the window title shows the progress of the download status. If the audio track is downloaded separately from the video, the red progress line indicates the status of the audio download.
