BitTorrent queue screenshot

I am using this BitTorrent 7.6 and I have many downloads in my queue.

I just want to change the queue order (marked in red) instantly but the process is manually and time consuming is their any way by which I can do this instantly.

Is their any options to do this or any 3rd party tools has to be installed?

In uTorrent, you can use the shortcut keys on multiple selected items to move the bunch up and down rather quickly. If I remember correctly, it's Ctrl+Alt+Up and Ctrl+Alt+Down.

Maybe BitTorrent also has a similar keyboard shortcuts?

I am not aware of a way to do this with the Bittorrent client. However with the uTorrent client you can easily adjust queue priority for items. I apologize if switching clients is not a satisfactory answer.

I'm pretty sure the 2 clients are almost identical. – Oliver Salzburg Mar 5 '12 at 19:44
I'm actually pretty sure that they are not identical, not even close. There is a great variation in Bittorrent client features. But I could be wrong, I have not used the default Bittorrent client in several years; perhaps they aimed for feature parity with uTorrent. – Myrddin Emrys Mar 5 '12 at 21:56
BitTorrent Inc. acquired µTorrent several years ago. The µTorrent code is the base for the official BitTorrent client. You can already tell they're pretty much identical by looking at the screenshot. – Oliver Salzburg Mar 5 '12 at 21:58
Cool, I didn't know that. Thank you, sorry for the error. – Myrddin Emrys Mar 7 '12 at 20:39

On a Mac, the shortcut is CTRL + OPTION + Arrow Key Up or Down
