Before SharePoint introduced the new experience, it was a bit hard downloading multiple files at once. That’s why if you haven’t modernized your SharePoint sites, you’re actually missing out on a lot of things.

With the new user interface, downloading multiple files at once from SharePoint is as easy as copying files using the Windows Explorer.

Let me show you…

How to download files from SharePoint

To start, simply navigate to the your SharePoint site’s files folder.

  1. Just curious: what version of SharePoint are you using here? I’ve tried this on my SharePoint 2019 On Premises instance, and the moment you select more than 1 file, the download button goes away.

      Unfortunately, the option to download multiple files is not available in SharePoint 2019 and that seems to be by design.
