Have you encountered a problem with a CRDOWNLOAD file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a CRDOWNLOAD file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your CRDOWNLOAD file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


With the CRDOWNLOAD file extension, the web browser marks Google Chrome files during the download. These files record the contents of a file being downloaded. When the download is done, the extension will automatically be removed from Chrome.

The extension is only appended to the original ending of the download file, for example, Clip.avi.crdownload. This procedure is intended to prevent users from opening unfinished files. For streamable material, of course, the extension can be easily removed manually and so the content can be used.

If a download is aborted by the user, Chrome deletes these files automatically, only in case of a Windows or browser crash such files remain. Unfortunately there is no possibility with Chrome to continue the download of a CRDOWNLOAD file later.

Unfortunately a bit tricky, but with the program wget CRDOWNLOAD files can be continued. After removing the extension CRDOWNLOAD you can use the --continue switch (which is an option of wget) and specifying the source of the file to get it ready to load.

How to open a CRDOWNLOAD file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the CRDOWNLOAD file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a CRDOWNLOAD file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support CRDOWNLOAD files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a CRDOWNLOAD file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all CRDOWNLOAD files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with CRDOWNLOAD there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the CRDOWNLOAD file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the CRDOWNLOAD file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
