  1. My main torrent client has always been Azureus(Vuze), and is still is, where I do the majority of my downloads.
    The other day I decided to download G3 Torrent client, however, I still want the majority of downloads to go to Azureus whereas now, by default, they are being directed to G3.

    How do I enable, at a whim, where a particular download is directed or, if it has to be a bit more complicted, what do I change e.g. registry etc, as and when required to alter a bit torrent client destination?
    Cheers.

    You should be able to set the default torrent software from within it's option menus.
    If you save the torrent file to your desktop, just right-click it, and choose the program to open it with "open with"

    If you wanted a specific torrent to be downloaded by a specific client I would do something as simple as setting up a folder to watch for torrents in each client. Then save the torrent to the directory you have specified to watch by the client you want.

    Thanks fellas. Doing the right click, save routine is good enough for me.
