What is DOWNLOAD file?

A .DOWNLOAD file extension is used for the files that are being partially downloaded by the web browsers, such as the Google Chrome, and by some of the P2P file sharing websites. The DOWNLOAD extension is appended to the files when the files are yet to be completely downloaded and the DOWNLOAD suffix is removed from the file name as the downloading is successfully completed. Further, the DOWNLOAD file is categorized as a web file supported in both the text format and the binary format.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the DOWNLOAD file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the DOWNLOAD file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the DOWNLOAD file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the DOWNLOAD file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the DOWNLOAD file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
