Firefox Tip – How to Find Your Recent Downloads

When you start a download, the Firefox Downloads window automatically opens to help you keep track of files you download while using Firefox, including files you open and save to your computer. But sometimes you close that window (by mistake or on purpose) and then you wonder – how do I get that window back?

There are two ways to get that Downloads window back. You can access it through the menu, Click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP and on a Mac), and then click Downloads. Or, you can add another shortcut to your collection, which is Ctrl + J. (Cmd + J on a Mac.) Learn more about managing your downloads on our support site.
