    OK, Paul, I removed IE, rebooted (same issue), Added IE back (same issue), reset IE to defaults, rebooted, deleted the Microsoft Edge folder from %localAppData% in case it was remembering something but still it is the same.

    I tried it in my 10532 VM and it doesn't do it. No retry, no renaming (user folders are on C not relocated but otherwise the same, same software installed except newer version of Windows).

    Something is up with my install. The strange thing is it is a clean install only a couple of days old and I've really done nothing (that I recall) except relocating user folders. Perhaps it is that - I'll test it out.

    What gets you however and where there was an obvious mistake is that you can only import Favorites, bookmarks from IE yet IE is nowhere to be found except by the manual browse to the program folder itself in order to see it pinned! Somebody made a goof! Better have all of your Favorites, booksmarks backed up from your 7 or 8, 8.1 install first before using Edge!
    Actually you didn't answer the question.. did you?? Did you tell him how to fix his download issue other than saying use another browser?? If you have a solution to the problem in the OP fine.. but what you posted is not even close to that.

    Again, I have to suggest doing an in-place upgrade, you'll be able to save everything if you choose and the installer may update giving you a more stable install than your previous clean install (it has for me).

    I agree. The issue might be do to a bad instillation and that might clear that up.

    I'll give it a go, certainly. I'm out of other options...

    Thanks for your help all.

    In IE you have the options for "run, save, or save as" seen there with the options bar that appears at the bottom of the IE window you see open up for whatever download you are going for. In Edge everything immediates goes to the "users\user account\Downloads" folder automatically without any options! As I stated earlier it's not even close to being a finished browser let alone a replacement for IE at this time even when it is working.

    See if it resets any settings that might be causing it
    The only thing Edge gets from IE is bookmarks, Favorites as far as where you can import things from. The settings in one browser as a rule will have no effect on any other browser. They are two different browsers entirely. Edge would have to be reset to see if that would work since that is the browser having the problem.

    Besides seeing Edge wiped and then reinstalled fresh which isn't any option available at this time other things such as a firewall or antivirus program can impede things at times. What you see there is the options for downloads in Edge more like the download history seeing the only option of clearing the history.

    With Edge still in a beta form I wouldn't recommend to anyone to leave it set as the default browser for things like downloads, online media, etc. at this time since the browser even when working as seen there still is not ready to replace IE fully. What can't you understand about that?

    As far as a repair install I did that the first week when 10 was first out and then proceeded to rectify everything with the clean install still in use now! Not bugs to report since that was seen to. With any new version you can expect a few of them may be needed until everything is set to go! Then make another smart move of seeing a full system image backup of the drive created just in case of ???!

    Higher success rates are far more commonly seen with clean installs where everything tends to go on more fully. While on some rare occasions a clean install can also go buggy since it is still "Software" the probability of ending up with a buggy upgrade even when gong to repair install depends on how extensive a problem is. Edge by itself isn't a major issue when you have an alternative with IE before any new OS installs are required. The clean install is recommended when too much else seems to be bugged up!

    I tried the in-place upgrade. Didn't help. The problem is moving your user folders using sysprep.

    It did work on legacy Windows versions (not that Edge existed of course) but sysprep doesn't work reliably on 10240.

    If you have existing accouts then sysprep corrupts your Edge profile in %localappdata%/Packages and I can't find a way to replace (even parts of it) that works. I've tried replacing some or all from a new account but it didn't work. The only solution that worked for me is to delete the existing account and make a new one.

    All new accounts are fine. Any that existed before moving with sysprep have this issue.

    The next step would be the obvious for simply nuking the present account you are having the problem with and see if creating the same account only brand new will solve the problem. That makes a bit more sense then going with a repair install of 10 when this is only seen with one account.

    Here I never even use Sysprep but simply slap a clean install of any version of Windows on when and if it should become buggy! Sysprep is something you tend to use more for server application as well as corporate deployment over the home desktop to begin with. The very top of one blog seen at The WIndows Club quoted here for example explains how that works. How to use Sysprep Tool in Windows 10 / 8 / 7

    System Preparation Tool (Sysprep) in Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 10


    The System Preparation Tool (Sysprep), is meant for System Administrators and OEMs, to automate the deployment of Windows operating system. Once you have performed the initial setup steps on a single computer, you can run the Sysprep tool to prepare the sample computer for cloning and automate the deployment on other computers. It can be found in the \Windows\System32\sysprep folder.
    The MS Answers as well as TechNet and MSDN forums have a number of threads regarding problems withe Sysprep on the TP builds as well as on the present RTM.
