Download Multiple Documents From Sharepoint

Below are instructions on how to tag multiple files in SharePoint. I provide several different instructions, depending on the version of SharePoint and document library experience that you have in your environment. SharePoint Online New Library Experience. On the Document. In SharePoint online, you can now select multiple documents and then download them. It will download the doucments in a zip folder in your downloads directory. Select documents.

You can download files and folders from OneDrive, or from SharePoint Online or SharePoint Server 2019, to your computer with just a few clicks. Here's how:

Download Multiple Documents From Sharepoint Library

  1. On your OneDrive, SharePoint Server 2019, or SharePoint Online website, select the files or folders you want to download.

    • To download individual or multiple files, select each item by clicking the circle check box that appears. (The left image below shows items in List view, the right image shows items in Tiles or Photos view.) (You can also select several files at once by selecting one file, scrolling down the list, then hold down the Shift key while left-clicking the last item you want to select.)

    • To select all files in a folder, click the circle to the left of the header row, or press CTRL + A on your keyboard.

    • To select a folder, rather than just its contents, you may need to go up or back a level to select the whole folder.

  2. In the top navigation, select Download. (You can also right-click the file, photo, or folder, and select Download.)

    Notes:

    • The Download button will only appear when files or folders are selected.

    • The Download button may sometimes disappear if you refresh the web page while looking at a folder. To work around this, you can go up one level in the folder directory and come back, or close that tab in your browser and navigate to the folder again.

  3. If your browser prompts you, choose Save or Save As and browse to the location where you want to save the download. (Some browsers just start saving right away to a Downloads folder on your computer.)

    Notes:

    • If you need to free up space on your OneDrive, download your file or folder to a location outside of your OneDrive folders (see below). You can then delete the OneDrive copy of the file or folder to reduce your storage amount.

    • For more information, see Delete files or folders in OneDrive.

If you select multiple files or folders and then select Download, your browser will start downloading a .zip file containing all the files and folders you selected. If you're in a folder and you select Download without selecting any files or folders, your browser will begin downloading all contents of the folder.

Notes:

Download Multiple Documents From Sharepoint
  • You can't download files directly from the Shared view. You will need to open the file and save a copy in the location of your choice.

  • You can't download OneNote notebooks. If you download a folder that contains a OneNote notebook, the .zip file will contain an error message in the form of a .txt file.

  • The option to download multiple files is not yet available in on-premises SharePoint Server (when your organization doesn't subscribe to an Office 365 business plan).

  • The Download button may sometimes disappear if you refresh the web page while looking at a folder. To work around this, you can go up one level in the folder directory and come back, or close that tab in your browser and navigate to the folder again.

  • In OneDrive for Business, you can't use Internet Explorer to download folders or multiple files. You can use Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome to download folders or multiple files.

  • Downloads are subject to the following limits: individual file size limit: 15GB; total zip file size limit: 20GB; total number of files limit: 10,000.
