Why can’t Edge download files when it’s closed?


Closing Microsoft Edge window when it’s downloading files gives a warning that you’ll lose all your downloads.

That’s unnacceptable because a UWP app called iDownload Manager keeps downloading in the background even when you’ve closed it’s window. In fact there’s no indication that the app is even running except when you see a notification in the action center informing that a download is complete.

It’s very annoying being forced to keep the Edge window open just for the downloads to finish.
