[SOLVED]Download Manager Not Downloading Files✔

For any reason Android download manager may misbehave and stop downloading files. It may display 'Downloading' on Download Manager screen but file is not downloading rather it keep loading and wasting your time.

Download Manager Not Download Anything On Android
Download Manager Not Downloading - SOLVED✔
I experienced this on Android version 6 marshmallow and I managed to solve the problem with one of the methods I will be sharing with you today.


Method 1


This method should help by clearing cache data and other data used by download manager app. To clear app data,
  • Go to Settings
  • Scroll down and click on Apps
  • Select Download Manager
  • Click on Storage
  • Now Clear cache and Clear data
    Clear App Data Android
Try downloading again if it solves the problem.

Method 2


I tried this with Android Lollipop version, it worked perfectly and Download Manager not downloading problem was gone for good.
To do this, follow below steps...
  • Open Settings
  • Scroll down and click on Apps.
  • Select Download Manager
  • Click on Permissions and Turn ON Storage.
    Turn ON Storage Permission Android
For sure that will help. If not, try using other methods.

Method 3


If download manager seizes to work, it could be as a result of wrong settings and to reset app preference is a better idea to put download manager settings back to place.

And to reset app preference,
  • Go to Settings, scroll down and click on Apps
  • Click on Three-Dots located at the top right corner of your screen.
  • Select Reset App Preference
    Reset App Preference Android
NOTE: Doing this may reset settings on all apps including built-in and third-party apps. To avoid that you should consider Reinstalling download manager updates.

Method 4


I know you must have tried above methods and if it doesn't resolve Download Manager problem for sure method 4 will.

Try deleting current Download Manager, install older versions, Install same version or install an updated version I believe that will help. Before install don't forget to accept Unknown Sources.
  • Open Settings
  • Scroll down and tap on Security(it might be accompanied with '&'. I.e Security & Location or Location & Security or might stand alone), all the same.
  • After that, scroll down and turn ON Unknown sources
    Turn ON Unknown sources Android
  • Now install Download manager.
