Your answer could be something like:
Use IE to visit this link.
Right click on any link...
...and select Save target as...
Then the Save As dialog box should appear
Click on the arrow to the right of the file name field.
That should make the drop down list appear.
That is the list of saved files that I want to clear.
Professionally would not apply as there is no charge, so....maybe somebody should not be attempting to answer questions if they don't know where a download comes from whether it is email, iTunes, a USB memory stick...etc etc.

FYI, it has nothing to do with your browsers.
I didn't think it would, it seems like a Windows 7 thing which is why I asked here.

And the download works, but it shouldn't have to be that way. Windows gets worse and worse with each generation. Thank you for the answer, I greatly appreciate it. Too easy.
