When using Chrome browsing is similar to other browsers. However, there are some unique features of browsing in Chrome.
Chrome can display many different types of documents, media, and other files, such as PDF and MP3 files. But there may be times when you'll want to access a file outside of the browser. To do this, you'll need to download the file directly to your computer.
For example, suppose you need to complete and print a form you find online. You could download it to your computer, then open it with the appropriate program (such as Microsoft Word) to edit it.
If you click a link to a file, it may download automatically. However, depending on the file type, it may just open within the browser. To prevent a file from opening in Chrome, you can use Save link as to download it to your computer.
For various reasons, many websites do not allow you to download content. For example, YouTube does not offer a way to download its videos.
The Downloads tab allows you to view and manage all of your downloads.
