How to Resume an Interrupted Download in Google Chrome

Stock Chrome Logo

An internet connection can be unpredictable at times, and a sudden drop of the connection while downloading a large file can be frustrating. However, Google Chrome lets you resume downloads if they unexpectedly stop.

Resume Downloads Using Chrome’s Download Manager

Google Chrome uses a built-in download manager to display all your downloads—active, failed, canceled, and completed. The manager opens in its own tab and shows a list of every file you’ve ever downloaded in Chrome.

Note: Some websites don’t allow for you to resume a download if it fails to complete the first time around. Certain web servers don’t remember your request to download the file, forcing it to start from the beginning all over again.

To open the download manager, type chrome://downloads into the Omnibox and hit the Enter key. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+J on Windows or Command+J on macOS.

Type chrome://downloads into the Omnibox and hit Enter.

In the list of downloads, find the failed item and click “Resume”.

Click "Resume" to resume the file when you connect to the internet again.

If everything goes right, your download will resume from where it left off before you were disconnected.
