Silly IE8 Question

Im back on Windows for the first time in about a decade. I'm trying to use IE8, but i dont know where to see a list of active downloads. Does it have a window that shows the status of all current downloads? Where do i find this?

If you right click on a file in a web page to download, and choose "save target as", IE (or whatever program you use to start a download) will open a new separate "download file" dialog box in which you choose the save location. The next window tracks the download until it says "Download Complete". Once the download begins you can close the IE window since the download status is tracked in it's own window. If you start 10 separate downloads you will have 10 separate "progress tracking" windows which you can minimize to the task bar to get them out of the way. IIRC, that's also how IE worked in Win98 10 years ago.

It would be nice if it kept a list of active and past downloads.... like other modern browsers.

Perhaps we can finally see something like that in IE9. The beta is coming out in only 2 days and it has been the best kept secret about its looks and features, so let's hope your wish comes true.

Silly question - what version do I have?
For support on a piece of hardware I need to tell the manufacturer the W7 version and service pack I'm running. How do I find that information? Help oddly enough doesn't tell me.

Maybe a silly question...
Good morning internet friends, I know this may be a silly question, but I'm going to ask anyway. I have Magicjack, and it leaves me messages in the form of .wav files in emails. These are then downloaded. They go directly to Windows7 download folder. Because this same folder gets all .tmp files,...

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 :)
