How to Resume an Interrupted Download in Google Chrome
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.
In the list of downloads, find the failed item and click “Resume”.
If everything goes right, your download will resume from where it left off before you were disconnected.
