Netflix Download Folder Location on Windows 10



One of the best new features of Netflix is the ability to save or download movies. With this feature, offline viewing is possible without a constant internet connection. But what if you want to locate the files? This guide will show you where the default download location is for all of the movies and television shows.

1. Open File Explorer

From the taskbar, open file explorer.



2. Go To Into Options

At the top of the screen, select “View”. Then to the top right of the screen select “Options”. A folder options menu will pop up.



3. Select The View Tab

At the top of the menu there will be several tabs. Select “View”, then look under the “Files and Folders” options.



4. Show Hidden Files

If it isn’t already selected, click “Show Hidden files, folders, and drives. It is a sub-option of “Files and Folders” under “Hidden files and folders”. Make sure to select okay and the menu will close out.



5. Navigate To The User Folder

After the menu closes out, you should be back at the file explorer screen with your listed drives. Click on the address bar at the top and copy and paste this (without quotes) “C:\Users\” and press enter.



6. Select Your Username

Open the folder with your current username. If you choose the wrong folder, then the final might not work correctly.

I was able to see the netflix files but unable to play the movie. If I am unable to play the movie on my windows 10, then there is no point copying them on the flash drive to watch it elsewhere, right?
