I accidentally clicked download button of 1.2 GB (my wifi speed is slow so it's a problem) file, from chrome browser on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, now I want to cancel this download package but it seems impossible to me. I googled and found this similar question but none of those answers helped me.

  • My device download manager don't show chrome current downloading.

  • when I close my wifi, download pause,but when I turn on wifi then download resumes.

  • when I force stop chrome app,download stops,but when I open it again download starts again.

My device is xiaomi mipad1 (China version) running on miui.My device is not rooted.


simple ... just go too setting ..apps...download and force stop download application and clear data ....

  • It will delete my accounts passwords which were saved :/ that's only thing stopping me to do so.

You can press on the file name which is downloading and as soon as you click you will get 2 options below that file cancel or pause. click on cancel

  • If you used xiaomi device,then you may know long pressing on notification will only opens notification settings of that app(chrome).
