Open recently downloaded file in chrome from downloaded tab

Hi Team,

I would like to download recently downloaded excel file by clicking the file directly from download bar.
I want to wait until the files gets download fully and open that file from download bar.
Is there any way to do it? Thanks in advance

Hi @krajavkp

Welcome to the community!!

You could do it.
Normally, when a file is downloading in Chrome, There is a small download progress shown around the icon right. You can either use Wait Element Vanish activity and indicate that icon so that it will wait for that element to disappear and to show the file ready icon which you already have in the screenshot. The other approach is, you can use On Element Appear activity to wait until the download ready icon (the icon in your screenshot) to appear on the left side bottom and have a click activity within it to open the file.

Let know how it goes for you!!

if this works, please make sure to mark my answer as the solution to help others as well :slight_smile:
