Alternatively, since you already have the Mac App Store open when downloading a file from it, you can also keep an eye on downloads from within its confines. For new apps, you'll need to click through to an app's page. Below the blue Installing button is a progress bar that estimates how many minutes remain before the download is complete. When updating apps, you can see their progress on the Updates tab.
For files you download not from the Mac App Store but from the internet, the Launchpad offers no help. If you've dragged your Downloads folder to the Dock, then you can mouse over it to see a progress bar of a file currently being downloaded. Unlike the Launchpad, the Downloads folder doesn't show you the MB count when you mouse over its icon.
With iOS 13, Apple has brought a similar feature to the mobile version of its Safari browser in the form of the Download Manager. Now, when you choose to download a file, such as an image or document, a little download icon is displayed in the top right corner of the screen.
By default, files downloaded in Safari are saved in the \"Downloads\" section of the Files app, but you can easily customize the storage location: Launch the Settings app, select the Safari section, and tap Downloads. From this screen you can opt to store downloaded files in iCloud Drive, on your iPhone, or in another location of your choosing.
The Downloads screen in Safari settings also includes an option to Remove Download List Items automatically After one day (the default), Upon successful download, or Manually.
Here you can see on the Apple website a link to download images of the AirPods Pro. In this instance you can left click and the files will begin to download. This is because it is a direct download link.
To do this, open Safari, click on Safari in the top toolbar and then click preferences, then click General. On this menu click the drop down box next to File download location, and then select a new destination folder for Safari downloads to be saved in.
Another way to immediately access your downloaded files is through the Dock. Your recent downloads are often found on the right side of the Dock in a stack. Hover over it to preview the contents or click to expand it.
As we already mentioned, you can also find your Safari downloads using Finder. This is a valuable utility to locate items on our Mac. Simply click the magnifying button on your menu bar and type \"downloads,\" or go to your Dock and click Finder to open the Finder window.
I now have Lion and for the first 3 days I had Safari and now it is not opening. So I went to downloads and all I get is the installer but it keeps telling me to quit Safari and it won't highlight, so I can't quit it. What has happened to Safari
Does anybody know how to enable or disable the new safari download iconOn my mac it doesn't appear at all. I am running Leopard 10.6.3 and the current version of Safari is 4.0.5.

When we download content, our computer's store it in a specific place. By default, your Mac stores downloaded content from the Web in the Downloads folder. Access it via the Finder directly or through a browser. You can also change the default location for downloaded files.
A Downloads Stack is included as a part of the Dock unless you have disabled it and displays the contents of the Downloads folder. If you click on the Downloads Stack, it expands to show you individual file thumbnails. If you have many files stored in your Downloads folder, the Stack shows a handful of your most recently downloaded files with an Open in Finder option that takes you directly to the Downloads folder in Finder.
While files downloaded from Safari are stored in the Downloads folder by default, there is another way to view recent downloads from within the Safari browser. Click the down arrow icon next to the Safari address bar to display a list of recently downloaded files. If you are currently downloading files, this list displays a download progress bar next to each file.
Within the Downloads section of Safari, clicking Clear empties your downloads queue, but does not delete the actual files from your Mac. Downloads that have been cleared from within Safari can still be accessed from the Downloads folder or Downloads Stack.
Like Safari, Chrome has its own Downloads section. Select Window in the Chrome menu bar and then Downloads. Alternatively, typing \"chrome://downloads\" into the address bar displays the same content. Chrome Downloads displays a list of downloaded files organized by most recent download. Selecting Open downloads folder displays the Downloads folder in Finder. Similar to Safari, selecting Clear all wipes the downloads list from the Chrome browser but does not delete the files from Finder.
Select Safari in the menu bar, choose Preferences and then select General. Next to the Save downloaded files to option, select the drop-down menu and click Other to display a Finder window, where you can select any folder or external drive as a new destination for files downloaded in Safari.

When the testing period is over, you'll no longer be able to open the beta build. To install the App Store version of the app, download or purchase the app from the App Store. In-app purchases are free only during beta testing, and any in-app purchases made during testing will not carry over to App Store versions.
Note: To automatically download additional in-app content and assets in the background once a beta app is installed in iOS 16, iPadOS 16, or macOS 13, turn on Additional In-App Content in your App Store settings for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
When browsing a pdf or other web documentS using Safari, you can tap on the link of the page, and it will bring up the screen that shows you different options including the option to download the PDF.

To complete any of the steps below, you'll need the email address and password associated with your active and licensed Microsoft 365 subscription or your one-time purchase of Microsoft 365 for Mac.

Safari has always done a great job at letting you browse the web, but it has never so much as offered a way to download files locally. Other apps have stepped in to help fill the gap, but they never felt as integrated into the iPhone as a native downloads manager would. They aren't needed anymore though, because Apple added one in iOS 13, pushing Safari on the iPhone closer to its sibling on the Mac.
The new download manager includes several powerful features, including default folders, file previews, and downloading in the background. By working with the Files app, Safari lets you download a file locally on your device, to iCloud, or to any supported third-party app. You can also monitor the progress of downloads, stop, start, or cancel them, and jump straight to their location in the Files app, right from Safari's new downloads manager.
By default, iOS will create a new \"Downloads\" folder in iCloud Drive and set it as your default download location. You can change that to a different location inside iCloud Drive or to a folder within \"On My iPhone\" so that downloads are locally contained and not eating up iCloud storage.
You can also choose when items are removed from the download manager's list of downloads. Removing downloads will not delete the actual file but will just remove it from the list to keep it from getting cluttered with downloads. By default, it's set to remove items from the manager after one day, but there are a few other options.
Downloading a file from Safari works just like you'd expect. Tapping a link to a downloadable file will open a dialog box confirming you would like to download the file. Once you tap \"Download,\" the file will be added to the downloads manager and start downloading. It will continue downloading until the entire file is downloaded, even if you close Safari or leave the webpage.
If the file you are downloading is something Safari can view, such as media (audio, videos, or images) or documents (PDFs), the download dialog box will also have an option to load the file right in Safari instead of downloading it. To view the file immediately, select the \"View\" option in the dialog box. 153554b96e
