    Is there a download box option?!


    When downloading anything through a browser.. I used to have a small green arrow show its progress, or a download box appear, where you could choose to open it or go to it's location. Now in windows 8, when downloading. I have to go into the documents/downloads folder to find it.

    Is there any way to change this?! I'm already struggling without a start button to even open programs!

    Hello loopycerys,

    In Internet Explorer, you can view the progress of your downloads in the "View Downloads' window.

    Hope this helps,
