I download a lot of files being a computer tech. I liked having it at the bottom of the screen, or a pop-up like IE, because I have a 32" screen and moving my mouse up to the top right every time to click save as for downloads is very annoying and makes multiple saves cumbersome.
What was this moved? It takes up more real-estate and it is just annoying to change it without giving users the option?
Can they provide a pref to move it back to the bottom please?

@Andrzej1 This can be good for some of people, but this ruins UX for some of people like me. If Edge developers will insist to keep this change and have no plan to offer any "options", Well I need to find alternative application for web browsing.
I've found the "Pin downloads" button in the download manager while I'm writing this post, and this recovers UX I lost, but it doesn't persist when I close and open it again, and I need to click every time when I need fixed download manager. Furthermore, I can't move this panel to the bottom of the window.
Chromium Edge is now shipped on every new Windows 10 installations, and Microsoft must consider not to confuse other users when they are using the application. I want to question to them: Do you people have any plan to improve this UI to embrace people who like previous one?

I prefer the current version, with the download button at the top. But I believe that the best thing is that the developers provide an option by which the user can choose between one style or another, because surely there are many people who prefer the new format but also many people who prefer the old format.
How about we all send feedback to the developers by attaching the link to this post to the message, with the image of this post attached as well. They really read it, and if they find that many users are interested they will probably think about it more closely.

I do beta testing at work, not at home. They just released it on week of April 15th, version 90 for all users.
90 Released Week of 15-Apr-2021 90.0.818.39
The whole point of Chromium Edge is to replace Internet Explorer and Chrome.
Chrome 90 pops up an explorer window right away and asks you where to save. In IE it is a popup in the middle of the screen.
I think they should leave that as an option. I am dealing with hospital workers who run around in hospitals all day. They don't have time to go searching for where Edge moved the downloads this week. We need a consistent experience for business.
I did send feedback but I am not super confident it actually gets read.

"It's not chromium Edge, just Edge. This is consistent, a change happened and it will stay that way. what makes it inconsistent is some people asking to use the old design while the others want to stay on the new one."
Edge is an App that runs in the System folder and it still is on about 50% of our Windows Enerprise computers. C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe
Chromium Edge is software that installs in Program Files and it is a copy of the Chrome browser. It has to be manually installed on OS older than 20H2. So not the same thing at all.
Consistent means that it is consistent with IE and Chrome which is what it is trying to replace.
Again that's just what you call it, Microsoft doesn't refer to it as chromium Edge.
it's the new Edge that replaced the old Edge browser, that's it.
if you wanna call it that then call others chromium Vivaldi, chromium Opera, chromium Brave.
which is funny.
also IE isn't even a thing, just for backward compatibility. neither IE nor Chrome should be as an example for other browsers to be consistent with.

Hello. Yes of course, IT requires the ability to quickly adjust, this is normal! And this change has been tested so it's in a stable channel and it doesn't matter if it's for business or home use. such memories are understandable too, but you have to move forward so I believe.
Yeah i agree with you
