    I DL to the Desktop. After the DL is complete I close the Chrome browser but the crdownload file remains on the Desktop (download is complete, no errors). When I try to delete the crdownload file I get a pop up window that says ...

    Could Not Find This Item

    If I Sign Out / In then the crdownload file does disappear from the Desktop but how can I remove them without doing a Sign Out / In?


    Thanks for any help ...

    never thought to right click on the desktop except to make a folder or change display settings ... seems I'm guilty of Scotomisation on this one
