Windows 10: Downloading on Windows10 Solved

    Downloading on Windows10

    I removed W10 and reinstalled my W7 after I was frustrated that I could not select the download button on sites, as I have always done before with my W7 and then could not see the "Save As" drop down box to select which file I wanted to save the download to and I could not even overwrite the title of the download, instead it had an alpha numeric file name as a default and I could not change it to the proper film clip name or one of my own choice.

    This is one of the most common reasons I use my PC and was very annoyed that I could not get the downloads to work from various sites, as I have previously done with W7 and previous versions. I am now back using W7 but would install W10 again, if I could get round this problem. Any suggestions ?

    Hello Brisser, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It sounds like you are using Microsoft Edge??

    If so, then you could use Internet Explorer instead if you like. Start -> All apps -> Windows Accessories -> Internet Explorer

    thank you. I reinstalled W10 and used explorer instead of edge and now I can download like I used to.
    . :) Many thanks for your help
