All good modern web browsers have a download section where you can locate downloaded files. The same area can be used for pausing downloads that are yet to complete and restart them again if you haven’t closed the browser.

Since web browsers can’t copy each other and must offer something different, finding the location of your downloaded files isn’t exactly easy if you’re new to using the Microsoft Edge web browser. But once you get to know the Edge icons, you’ll soon find out that viewing the downloaded files is as efficient as most other browsers. About the only thing Edge is yet to catch up on is offering an address that users could type into the address bar (like Chrome has) that would allow them to open the downloads that way as well. That will likely come in due time when more people start using the Edge browser, which is still suffering from fewer users than Internet Explorer.

This tutorial demonstrates how to view the download history when you’re using the Microsoft Edge web browser.

Method One: How to View and Clear History of Downloads in Microsoft Edge

1. Open the Microsoft Edge web browser application by clicking on the “Edge” icon in the taskbar at the bottom of he computer’s display.

2. If you haven’t run or saved your downloaded file, you’ll need to do that first or else the file hasn’t technically downloaded to the computer yet and thus you wouldn’t be able to find or remove it.

3. Once you have run or saved the file, click on the “Favorites” icon and then click on “Downloads” from the left menu and “Clear all” to clear the download history.

Method Two: How to Open Downloads Folder in Microsoft Edge

1. Open the Microsoft Edge web browser application.

2. If you haven’t run or saved your downloaded file, you’ll need to do that first or else the file hasn’t technically downloaded to the computer yet and thus you wouldn’t be able to find or remove it.

3. Once you have run or saved the file, click on the “Favorites” icon and then click on “Downloads” from the left menu and “Open folder” to open its folder location in File Explorer.

That’s all.
