Windows 7: View Downloads Window

3 Weeks Ago   #1

Windows 7 Pro
View Downloads Window

This says how observant I am. I am guessing I lost my "View Down Loads" windows months ago and just noticed it.

How do I get that back?

Hi huffman-

Would you please explain in more detail where you are when you want to view downloads, i.e., Windows Explorer, IE, etc.

Right Click on Start Menu.

Hit "Properties"

Go to the Middle Property Sheet, and look for "Customise" on the upper right.

Hit that. This will bring up the "Customise Start Window" Property Sheet.

Look for "Downloads" and set it to "Display as Link - ON"

Do the same for any other Start menu items tt are missing, but you want to see.

If you re-installed Windows 7 recently, it will always show you a minimal set of start menu items. I don't think there is a way to backup all of your settings for that area, but I use a Windows 7 Management program that does have a way to save and restore system configurations. But it is a paid program, so can't share that.

Wouldn't all the downloads be listed in his/her browser? In Firefox, it's on the History page, and I think they all have a downloads list.
