This tutorial will show how to view and track your downloads using View Downloads in IE9 and IE10.
1. Open IE9 oe IE10, and ...... NOTE:In Windows 8, you would open the IE10 desktop version, and not the IE10 Metro (Windows UI) version.
A) Press CTRL + J.
B) Click/tap on the gear icon (tools) in the upper right corner, then click/tap on View downloads. (see screenshot below)
C) Once a download begins or finishes, click on the View Downloads button in the pop-up message bar at the bottom of IE9 or IE10. (see screenshot below)
2. You will now see a list of all the files that you have downloaded in IE9. Select a downloaded file and right click on it. (see screenshots below)
3. Click/tap on the option that you want to do with the selected downloaded file. (see screenshots above) NOTE:If an option is grayed out or missing, then it is not available for the selected downloaded file. This is usually do to the file being deleted or moved from the default download location.
so I appreciate that if you do what the instructions say, you can track your downloads - unless they don't work
If I click "view downloads" on the tool menu - nothing happens
If I click "view downloads" during the download - nothing happens
if I use Ctrl-J - nothing happens
I have no idea where my downloads are going
if I type the title of the file into search - nothing is found for that file
Thanx, some sites don't seem to let me "save as" otherwise I would. That's what prompted my attempt to discover why & where the files are "downloading" to. I'll do the reset after I catch up on business this morning.
