I am downloading the file in PC browser so I can easily capture the download link by entering into Downloads Tab & click "copy link address"

In Android, I know by long press on Download button, it gives menu so I can use "copy link address" to capture the address.

but not all sites display download address in Download tab, I mean Link address of download button & downloading file are not same.

so How to capture downloading address in androids OS?

Android OS is 4.2.2

Browser: chrome 30.0.1599.82

    @OP You can try some Download Managers like ADM which can capture download links.. – Gokul NC Oct 18 '16 at 15:25

Better choice for you is try to install third-party download manager, I recommend Loader Droid https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.zloy.android.downloader

You should be able to press and hold on the download button, then press "copy link address" or something similar to that.
