Hello Sir,

When deleting the "download history", does it actually delete the file from the "user > download folder"? Or does the file remain there and only the history is deleted.

Hello Anotherbri, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It only deletes the listed download history, and not the actual downloads themselves.

Thanks for the welcome Brink!!

So the actual download (for example, an .exe file) would still be there for the future in case it was needed to re-install something?

Correct. This only removes the list of downloads in IE9's download history. The downloaded file will still be where you saved it to.
