To see the open programs, access the “Task Manager” through the shortcut “CTRL + ALT + Delete” and you will be able to see all applications with active process. Right-click and then “End Task” to close the program.

    Another way to check which programs are active is through the “Show cult icons” option on the start bar, and by right-clicking on each icon it is possible to close and focus on downloading the Epic game.

    This tip is not just for the game, but any download that needs to have priority will be jeopardized if you are performing other operations simultaneously. Pause the other operation, finish the transfer in the Epic app, and then re-download the other file.

    Use the built-in “Limit downloads” function

    The most important tip is present in the Epic Games system itself. It may seem counter-intuitive to limit the download, but choosing a specific amount of data for the task helps you to get through the process quickly.
