View and Track Downloads on Internet Explorer

Edited by Thor, Sid Bedekar, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow, in this video, I am going to show you how to view and track your Internet downloads when using Internet Explorer 11. It is very useful to know how to view and track your downloads because if you lose track of them, if you move them to a folder you don't know where they are or you are not sure what you have downloaded or if there was problem with the download and you need to re-download it. This is a way to access it - access information very quickly to find out what you have downloaded and to access it again if you need to.
