I have a file that has been stuck at "2 seconds remaining" for about a day. I feel it's never going to finish, so I want to know how to cancel it without quitting or stopping Chrome.

None of these have worked:

  • turning off data and WiFi.
  • force "Downloads" or "Download Manager" to stop.
  • clearing the data of "Downloads" or "Download Manager".
  • the suggestion to force "Download Manager" to stop and then press "Clear Data" does not work because "Clear Data" becomes grayed out after hitting "Force stop".
  • going into notification bar and pressing for some kind of cancel option.
  • Clearing Chrome from recent apps? – beeshyams Aug 7 '16 at 3:47

Open the Downloads application, press and hold the download you would like to stop, and select the trash icon.

Go to google search box and type Download Manager, an icon will appear below, click on it and you will see a download history, look for the file you want to cancel click and hold the file you want to cancel until you see a trash icon above , click on the trash icon and download will be cancelled.
