I use a PC and an Android phone here.

Notes:

  • Your download history shows the downloads you have made.
  • As with Edge (PC and Android), downloads made using InPrivate browsing mode will not be displayed while browsing normally.
  • Edge (PC and Android) will not remove the downloaded file when you remove its entry from the download history.
  • Your downloads are automatically saved in the default download directory.
  • On Edge, the default download location is the “Downloads” folder in C: > Users > Username.

Let’s get started.
