I try to download a file. When the download box open it says 'canceled'. When I double click it, it starts to download. However, when that is complete the downloaded file will not automatically open. What's the problem?

this comment was posted by a previous enquirant, the same thing is occuring with my kit also.
we are talking about thinks like ' Google Chrome' and other pukka executable files.

Hi. Downloaded files do not open automatically. Go to the folder where it is downloaded. (usually called downloads) and double click the file from there.

Hello! I have a similar problem, when i double click the file in the download box it does nothing. Have tried re-downloading and also downloading different programs and they all do nothing. Thank you!
