Microsoft Edge Download Bar: How to Restore It to the Bottom of the Screen


How to Fix Download Bar Not Showing in Edge




Microsoft Edge is a fast and secure web browser that comes with Windows 10. However, some users have reported that they can't see the download bar at the bottom of the browser window when they try to download files from the web. This can be annoying and inconvenient, especially if you want to manage your downloads easily.


Why does this happen? There could be several reasons, such as a recent update that changed the download interface, a setting that disabled the download bar, or a glitch that caused the download bar to disappear. Fortunately, there are some ways to fix this problem and restore the download bar in Edge. In this article, we will show you how to do that.

How to Show the Download Bar in Edge




There are three options that you can try to show the download bar in Edge. Depending on your preference and situation, you can choose one of them.


Option 1: Enable Download Options in Settings




One of the easiest ways to show the download bar in Edge is to enable some download options in the browser settings. Here's how:


  • Open Microsoft Edge and click on the three-dot menu button at the top-right corner of the window.



  • Select Settings from the menu.



  • Click on Downloads in the left sidebar.



  • Turn on the toggle switches for "Show downloads menu when a download starts" and "Show downloads button" under Appearance.



This will make sure that you see a download menu at the top-right corner of the window and a download button on the toolbar whenever you start a download. You can click on them to access your downloads.

Option 2: Use Keyboard Shortcut to Show Download Menu




Another way to show the download bar in Edge is to use a keyboard shortcut that will bring up the download menu. Here's how:


  • Press Alt+F on your keyboard to open the Edge menu.



  • Right-click on the Downloads option in the menu.



  • Select Show in toolbar from the context menu.



This will add a download button to the toolbar that you can click to see your downloads. You can also right-click on it and select Hide from toolbar if you want to remove it later.


Option 3: Add a Parameter to Edge Shortcut on Desktop




A third way to show the download bar in Edge is to add a parameter to Edge's shortcut on your desktop. This will make Edge show the downloads panel at the bottom of the browser window like it did before. However, this method only works for Windows 10 and not for Mac. Here's how:


  • Open the Start menu and search for "Microsoft Edge ".



  • Right-click on the Microsoft Edge icon and select Open file location from the context menu.



  • Right-click on the Microsoft Edge shortcut in the file explorer and select Properties from the context menu.



  • Click on the Shortcut tab and locate the Target field.



  • Add --enable-features=msDownloadsHub at the end of the target path, after a space. Make sure there are no quotation marks around the parameter.



  • Click on Apply and then OK to save the changes.



This will modify the Edge shortcut to show the downloads panel at the bottom of the window. You can double-click on the shortcut to launch Edge with this feature enabled. You can also delete the parameter from the target path if you want to disable it later.


How to Customize the Download Bar in Edge




Besides showing the download bar in Edge, you can also customize it to suit your preferences. Here are some tips on how to do that.


How to Pin or Unpin the Download Button on Toolbar




If you want to keep the download button on the toolbar permanently or remove it temporarily, you can do so by pinning or unpinning it. Here's how:


  • Open Microsoft Edge and click on the three-dot menu button at the top-right corner of the window.



  • Select Downloads from the menu or press Ctrl+J on your keyboard.



  • Right-click on the Downloads option in the dropdown menu.



  • Select Show in toolbar or Hide from toolbar from the context menu, depending on what you want.



This will pin or unpin the download button on the toolbar. You can also drag and drop it to change its position on the toolbar.


How to Change the Default Download Location on PC




If you want to change where your downloaded files are saved by default, you can do so by changing the download location in Edge settings. Here's how:


  • Open Microsoft Edge and click on the three-dot menu button at the top-right corner of the window.



  • Select Settings from the menu.



  • Click on Downloads in the left sidebar.



  • Under Location, click on Change and browse to the folder where you want to save your downloads.



  • Click on Select Folder to confirm your choice.



This will change your default download location on your PC. You can also choose to ask where to save each file before downloading by turning on that option in Edge settings.
