    Hi,

    I am using Safari, and everytime I download anything, the "Downloads"-list appears. I have figured out how to remove the download list items (in Safari preferences), but I can't figure out how to entirely get rid of the pop-up. I do not need it, I know the download is in the Downloads folder, and you can't execute from the list anyway.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    TIA,

    I don't think there is any way to disable it completely ...

    I don't use Safari anymore ... but for ***** and giggles I loaded up ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist in Property List Editor. I don't see anything configurable for the Downloads window except dimensions.

    Glims can hide the Downloads window a certain period of time after a download completes.
