    Thats a long time with no response.

    Could be your question isn't really clear. This is what I assume.

    You download a file to the download folder, you open up the download folder and can't find the file that was downloaded seconds before ? If that is correct, I have found that it is best to have that folder sorted in descending sentence of "Date Modified". This will always place the file with the latest date at the top. Now if you have the download folders open in file explorer, you will have to refresh the display, since explorer will not automatically updated that folder.

    Hope that answers your question.
