Find Downloaded Files

When you download a file in Safari, it is added to the Downloads window where you can see the progress of the download. Use Window, Downloads to open it. To find the location of a file, click on the magnifying glass to the right of the file name. The Finder window with the folder containing the download will open. Even if you move the file from its original location, or rename it, you can use this to find the location of the file.

      What did the download manager say? What happened when you clicked on that item?

    maybe this is related. when I open an attachment (say from email), I know the progress of the download (and the file itself) is displayed in the download window. but the download window is always hidden behind my open applications (i.e. my hidden behind my email and other Safari apps). is there a way I can always have the download window, when in use, appear on top? thanks

      The folder itself is just like any other folder. I don’t know of a way to have it automatically jump to the front — it would disrupt other things that you were doing if it did that.

    is there an icon somewhere I can click on to get the folder to the top?

      In Safari there is, but not in Mail. Be default it should be in your Dock on the right side. Easy to access if from there. If you have removed it from the right side of the Dock, you can add it again easily enough.

    i’m not talking about the Downloads folder, but the window that shows the progress of the download…
