    Hi,

    I am still relatively new to OS X (coming from Windows) and one thing I cannot find anywhere and which drives me nuts is the estimated download time when downloading something from the internet (not app store). I can see the progress bar but that does not tell me much... Google was not my friend, could not find any solution to that.

    Many thanks!

    You can click on the downloads arrow in Safari on the right.

    Hmm. You seem to be looking in the right place; the time should appear next to the progress bar and speed. Do you see any text at all?

    Hi,

    I don't get that download windows in your screenshot. I look in finder under downloads and there is only this progress bar - no text.

    I got to that one from the download icon in the top-right corner of Safari (which is what iMacBooked was referring to above). You can also go to View > Show Downloads.
