Silly Question but I'm Stumped- IE8/9 view downloads AFTER completion

Hi there
I can't find it --but is there a way of looking at your download history AFTER a download has completed in IE8 or IE9 -- I can only see the popup application while a download is actually in progress.

(Same problem also on IE10 in Windows 8 developer preview if you are trying that version of Windows too).

I can't believe that the application is only available during a download.

Thanks
jimbo

Hi Jimbo,

Press Ctrl+J to view all your downloads on IE 9 & IE 10.

Simple enough. Just press CTRL-J in your IE window.

If you know where you're downloading your files to, of course you can simply browse to that folder and find them there. If you don't know, you can change the download location in IE's settings (Control Panel -> Internet Options).

No problem Jimbo. You can also find this option by clicking on the Tools icon at the top left corner of IE and then click on View Downloads.

How come the help menu , keyboard shortcuts shows that Ctrl J opens feeds ?
Anyone new to computers who has the Menu bar turned off might have trouble opening the help menu if they don't know the F1 shortcut.

A Silly Question.
Well, my question is if in Windows 7, DirectX and video codecs have to be installed by the user just as in Windows XP, because as far as I can see, some movies can be seen, and I haven't tried games yet. Thanks :)
