If I start a download, then change my mind, how do I cancel it? I tried closing Downloads but the download just keep running in the background. Thanks!

If you are downloading in Safari, a little "X" should appear on the right side (maybe left, I can't remember for sure) of the progess bar. Click that and it should stop the download.

I am using Safari for my browser. I'm so dumb I didn't even realize that it's my browser controlling my download. I thought it was a function of the OS.
Great! I just started a download and saw (for the first time) that little "x" on the right side of the download progress bar. I clicked on it, and the download stopped.
Thanks Todd51, I owe you one!
