[Solved] Where Are Netflix Downloads Saved on PC?
Downloading videos from Netflix for offline viewing is a straightforward process. Simply access the menu and go to the section labeled "Available for Download." From there, you can select the desired video and click on the download icon. On the other hand, locating downloaded Netflix content on a computer may require some guidance and time. In the following steps, we will explain how to find the Netflix downloads folder on Windows 10 or 11.
Step 1. First, open File Explorer from the Task Bar. Because the Netflix folder is a hidden folder, you are required to change the property of the folder if you want to open it.
Step 2. At the top of the File Explorer interface, please select “View” tab and then click on the Options menu button.
Step 3. In Folder Options, select the View tab and scroll to the Files and Folders settings. If it’s not checked, please select the Show Hidden files, folders, and drives setting to enable it. Make sure to select OK and the menu will close out.
Step 4. From File Explorer, you can navigate to the Netflix download folder by directly copying and pasting the path into the explore box. The full path is: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Packages\4DF9E0F8.Netflix_mcm4njqhnhss8\LocalState\offlineInfo\downloads.
Here [USERNAME] is the Windows folder with your current username.
Now that the folder is open, it's important to note that the files within it do not have recognizable names for movies or shows. Instead, they are unidentified data files that can only be played using the Netflix app. Therefore, even though you have found the location, the only action you can take is to manage your storage space by deleting these files, rather than copying them to other devices. This limitation can be disappointing.
