What is a DOWNLOAD file?
A DOWNLOAD file is a file that is currently being downloaded from the Internet or was stopped before the download finished. It may be double-clicked to resume the download using the same web browser that started the download.
Some P2P file sharing websites also save active downloads with the ".download" extension. The appropriate file extension is typically added once the download is complete.
