Easily download files from SharePoint

Q. How can I easily download a large number of files from SharePoint library?

A. Normally you can right click on a file in SharePoint and download it but it is much harder if you wish to download a larger number of files. The easiest option is to open up SharePoint in Internet Explorer (not Edge) and under Library tab select Open with Explorer. This will then enable you to copy and paste large numbers of files.
