Speed up JDownloader GUI

By default, JDownloader uses a style the might cost a bit CPU and RAM. If you have a very slow machine, you are able to change to a faster style.

First of all

Before changing the style, you should try to disable the advanced animations and the window decoration. Configuration–>Interface –>Performance.

Last help

If this does not help enough, you might switch into performance mode by selecting the first style in your list. We added this style for older computers.

Where are the move up/down Buttons?

The move up/down buttons are not useful any more. To sort the download folder you can either use drag & drop or the new priority system.

There will be contextmenu entries in the stable to move packages to top/bottom.

Why is the "Start" Button disabled?

If the Start Button is disabled, you probably still see the new linkgrabber. The new linkgrabber looks like the download view. You first have to add links or packages to the downloadview.
By default, the download starts immediatelly after adding links.
