Can't download files from google drive.
Hello, I can't download files from google drives. After scanning for virus and clicking 'download anyway' nothing happen. They just keep 'waiting for google' etc. please help.

Sep 14, 2020 I cannot download files from Google Drive using MS Edge. If I right-click on a file and select Download, no download occurs to my specified Downloads folder, or to anywhere else as far as I know. Google Drive files download fine from Firefox and Chrome. Fix ‘cannot download files from Google Drive in Microsoft Edge browser.’ Blocking cookies is the main reason for not downloading files from Google Drive in the Microsoft Edge browser. To fix it, we need to unblock the 3 rd Party cookies or exclude Google Drive cookies. Here is how to do it.

I am having a similar issue. It says 'Scanning for Viruses', finishes the scan, waits for a few seconds, and then nothing. I have signed out of both of my google accounts, restarted, and signed back into the affected google account only. No luck. I can download from this account on my phone and from my other google account. Help!
UPDATE: I was able to fix this by clicking on the 'closed eye' at the end of the URL bar and allowing cookies for google drive.

I connect in incognito mode, which disables third party cookies. Why do I need to enable them?
