Steps to reproduce

When click the file link in popup windows, no file “Save” / “Open” notification shown in the bottom of popup windows. For some file link, we add “download” attribute to hyperlink and it can download in popup windows. But most of our link is use download stream, the link will popup windows for loading and save file.

After close the popup windows, find that the “Save” / “Open” notification is shown in the parent windows.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We deliberately do not show notifications in popups, since they are generally intended to show an element with as little browser interface as possible. Therefor, we do not plan to release a fix for this case.

      Please feel welcome to submit your request at where other developers can up-vote your suggestion.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team


      May I also know failure in printing in popups is expected and there is no any method for printing in popup correctly?
