Downloads Overwrite Already Existing Files for Edge

CRX id


Description from extension meta

All downloads overwrite existing files instead of adding ' (1)', ' (2)', etc. Includes fix to remember folders.

Image from store Downloads Overwrite Already Existing Files
Description from store All downloads act to overwrite existing filenames instead of automatically adding ' (1)', ' (2)', etc. See following video for a quick demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oStlGAqTFeM See source code here: https://github.com/zach-adams/downloads-overwrite-already-existing-files Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/downloads-overwrite-alrea/lddjgfpjnifpeondafidennlcfagekbp I am not responsible for lost/overwritten data. This does not compare the contents of files or the file modification time before overwriting, it only compares filenames.

  • (2023-12-11) Goldstein,: This add-on makes life so much easier. Should be a default option in Edge.
  • (2022-06-29) Henry: Already used the extension from the chrome web store. Decided to start searching for extensions I use up on the Edge Addons page just for the sake of it being native even though I doubt it really matters much lol. This one is essential. Glad to see it.
  • (2022-06-16) Mingcheng: See, that is why I have hard time to use chrome-based broswer. Kind of stupid that Firefox has the functionalities like "Already existing files" but chrome/edge don't.
