Download

Download objects are dispatched by page via the page.on("download") event.

All the downloaded files belonging to the browser context are deleted when the browser context is closed. All downloaded files are deleted when the browser closes.

Download event is emitted once the download starts. Download path becomes available once download completes:

with page.expect_download() as download_info:
page.click("a")
download = download_info.value
# wait for download to complete
path = download.path()
note

Browser context must be created with the accept_downloads set to true when user needs access to the downloaded content. If accept_downloads is not set, download events are emitted, but the actual download is not performed and user has no access to the downloaded files.

download.failure()#
