    Have you tried going to the folder and removing a download file that you dont need anymore ...

    /sdcard/download

    No, sorry you have the wrong end of the stick ....

    He is referring to when you download non-Market apps ...
    they are placed in the download folder and then you can run install on them ...

    So are you saying you dont know how to delete apps ...
    or you want the My Downloads to not show delete apps any longer ?

    ... But even if you delete and app it will remain in your registry so you can reload it again ... in the event is was corrupted ... or your phone crashed ... new phone etc ...

    so the app once deleted from your phone vis Manage Apps ...
    should show as NEW ... rather than Installed, ... or Updated available ....

    I see why they call you Super Moderator Justjimjpc :D

    There are some Apps that after trying out I no longer want so have unistalled them and also do not want that particular App showing anymore in 'MY Downloads'

    This is not totally Possible ... even in the new ver 1.6 Paid Apps that have been removed will still show as Purschased ...

    However free apps removed will no longer appear ...

    This makes snese ... hopefully that works for you ...
