    I know this topic gets bounced around a lot and I currently have a pretty great workaround, but with the current shortcut options within file explorer (such as right-click > Open), it would be cool to have a right-click > Send To option (just like Windows Explorer), where the user could multi-select files, and send them to a compressed file. Then select and download the compressed file. Currently, zipping multiple files into a compressed file has to be done outside of the file explorer.

    Ultimately however, I want to be able to multi-select and download the individual files without having to first compress them into a  zipped file. Any chance Telerik is working on something that will provide true simultaneous download capabilities of mutiple files?

    Hi Steven,

    "Send to" would be a really useful functionality but its implementation requires a third-party library and could not be done.

    Of course, you could use the same approach like it is shown in the mentioned article in order to implement  it by yourself.

    In the following forum thread you can find useful information about the way multiple files could be downloaded without a compression: Multiple download functionality.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
