    Can't Download in Edge


    Any type of download from any site while in Edge will not download. When I click on Download nothing happens. I'm having to open Chrome if I want to Download anything at all. Thanks

    This quite often happens to me. To fix it sign on as a different user and delete this (hidden, system) directory for your normal account (replacing <normal user name> with the account name having the problem).

    C:\Users\<normal user name>\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache

    You could use the built in administrator account to do this. Enable it, sign off your account and onto the Administrator account, delete the directory, sign off Administrator and back into your account and then disable Administrator again.
