For each download, Edge offers controls to open, save.

Ensure you’ve to “Ask me what to do with each download” is tuned on Settings for this.

For a download that is in progress, you can able to pause and resume from where it has stopped.

Microsoft Edge’s Downloads flyout offers the following options

  • Manage all downloads
  • Clear downloads history
  • Downloads Settings
  • Hide the downloads button on the toolbar

We reported an extension is available that enables the Download menu like firefox in Edge,  the extension may no longer necessary going forward.

It’s worth noting that the new flyouts designed to resemble Edge legacy Hub, have been reported slow to load and making a navigating bit difficult. We’re not sure what’s the case with the new Downloads.
