I know how to create a link from shared file

https://drive.google.com/file/d/FILE_ID/view?usp=sharing

to direct download link

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=FILE_ID

However, I can't find a solution for directory direct download link? I have something like this

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/FOLDER_ID?usp=sharing

and this doesn't work.

https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=FOLDER_ID

I would like to have a link for directory which would compress all files and directories in it as one zip file like it does when downloading manually.

Unfortunately, a folder cannot be downloaded with the direct download link.

Such a folder needs to be firstly zipped e.g. zip = file = you can then use FILE_ID and after you get share link of that zip, you can then https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=FILE_ID it.
