Is there a window or option that will show the file download que? I set up a get from several folder on a remote server and I would like to know the progress of the individual file being downloaded, progress of the whole transfer, estimated time to completion, etc.

No, sorry, there isn't an option to show the download queue in Fetch at this time.
Fetch displays the name of the file currently being downloaded in the status pane beneath the file list.
Fetch only shows the time remaining for the current file; it does not show the overall time remaining or progress of the whole transfer, sorry.
(In order to do that, Fetch would have to ask the server about each file individually in order to get the total number of files and the total size; in FTP there is no good way to ask the server to tell Fetch the size of everything in a folder. For a lot of files, that can be a time-consuming process; so instead of making you wait for Fetch to do that, Fetch just starts downloading right away, even though this means you have less information about overall progress.)
Sorry not to have a better answer for you, and please let us know if you have further questions.

Note: Fetch 5.7 now displays the time remaining for the entire transfer.
