Windows 7: IE11 Download resume

IE11 Download resume

Hi guys.

I hope I'm posting in the correct section, if not please move?

I've searched this forum but nothing useful shows.

If I download a large file with IE11 (I don't want to install any download managers) is there any option to keep it downloading without having the browser open. The pop up window at the bottom sometimes disappears so you don't know if its still downloading or not, can that be shown again?

On my WinXP IE8 desktop the download box is a separate item which you can move anywhere. You can close the browser and it still downloads. I don't see anything in Internet Options.

Thanks, Keith.

Have you tried checking in the internet options section for something that may allow you to do that?

Select CTRL + J while in IE to view the downloads window. Then close IE.

Thanks for your replies guys.

Thanks for the CTRL + J tip pbcopter that's logged. As I've said I looked in Internet Options but I can't see anything listed.

But if you close IE is it still downloading, it does appear so?

You would think that M$ have been making IE since 1995 you would think that newer versions would have improvements but they don't.

I seem to remember IE9 on my old Vista laptop had the same download box as WinXP which was great.

If you use CTRL+J to open the downloads window, then close all other IE windows and tabs, the download is not interrupted. If you close the downloads window, the download stops, of course. Simple as that.

I tried opening the download browser CTRL+J and yes you can close IE and it carries on browsing. The only problem is if I click the Pause button to let it recover for a while when I click the Resume button is doesn't resume so you have to start the download again.

I made a C:\Downloads folder so I know where everything is downloaded to. I can't do with clicking on C:\Users\my name\Downloads to look what's been downloaded. The files I'm trying to download are 800kb rar files.

Hi,
Okay the only way I've ever downloaded a rar file is when it was in a zip folder :/
How are you downloading the files,
I would usually right click and Save Target as then direct it to the folder I wanted it to download too be it desktop......
