Default How do you cancel a download?

I can't figure out how to cancel a video file I've been downloading. It's just taking so long... I tried opening the notifications and pressing menu but there's nothing to press to cancel.

Sorry, but as of now there is no confirmed way of canceling any download process.

If you're in the stock browser, hit menu then more. select Downloads then highlight the one you want to cancel. I think you can long press it then select cancel. I just had to do this a few minutes ago

How to cancel incomplete download in Android ?


Go to main launcher screen > menu button > Settings > Applications > Manage applications> “All” tab > Select “Market” from the list > Clear cache and then Clear data.

Solution 2: Click or touch on download manager and Clear cache and then Clear data or “Force stop” the application.

Cool

Yeah I have seen this problem recently with a friend who just brought his cell yesterday and i was myself a bit confused too to find the trick. But in the end i found the way. All you have to do is to go to Settings -> Applications --> Manage Applications --> Running Tab. There search for 'Download Manager' and stop it. Thats all.

Your problem solved.

P.S: his phone was LG Optimus One.

Default I tried all the solutions above, but figured out my storage was full

I had the same issue, where i had a ongoing download from my browser that I just couldn't clear from the notification area. I tried everything, including restarting the phone, clearing the cache of the Android browser, Google Chrome Browser, I tried as well to keep my finger pressed on the download, no reaction. checked in the Downloads in both browsers where it didn't appear.
No way to stop the ever ongoing download. And it apparently drained my battery quite a lot, when it kept on trying to download.

Finally i got it to stop. The reason was, that my USB storage was full. I deleted a few files, and the download completed and can now be cleared.
Just wanted to write it here in case someone else is googling this problem.
