To manage multiple downloading files in Google Chrome, it’s not a hectic job. The time you try to download a file from any specific website using Google Chrome browser, the file had saved to a user-defined specific location in their PC. After that, the file can be open via associated application with Chrome or any third-party app from the PC. Some website tries to send additional files with your download. There could be some purposeful attempt for sending malware also. Thank god, Chrome provides us with the settings to make these additional files attempt to stop.
