I had started a download on chrome, but after sometime wanted to stop it. There is no option available for that either in chrome app or in the mobile download manager. What should I do ?

  • I haven't looked at it myself while a download is active, but have you checked your chrome://download-internals page?

You can go to download manager and long press on the entry and delete the file from options menu. Alternatively you can force airplane mode or switch off net/wi-fi to cancel the download.

In rare cases when its stuck in notification then go and force close the downloads app or clear data for download manager app.


Here is how I do it:

  1. Long press the notification of the download, and click app info
  2. now force stop Google chrome and the download will stop
