NewsLeecher’s main screen is shown below. Before we go on to the settings, I will first explain the various parts of the interface.
At the top you can see the menu bar including a list to activate a group. The bar beneath it contains a number of buttons that perform the most common actions. Beneath all this we see the most important part of NewsLeecher, a bar in which we can choose between various tabs. The content of the main screen depends on the tab selected.A brief explanation of the tabs:
|Add servers and Usenet newsgroups|
|Watch the contents of a Usenet newsgroup|
|List all items in the download queue|
|Extract||Check on the progress of automatic repair and extraction of the files.|
|About the same as the Windows Explorer|
|News & Log||Version information, news and a log|
Take a look at the bottom left-hand corner. The green section shows us the download speed in graph format. The section at the bottom right-hand corner is used to show the connections to the servers and which action is being performed on a server. Below this there is a status bar, which shows the maximum download speed, the current download speed and the free disk space.
