  1. Thanks for this tip. The most useful. I did have a video sent to me that I could not download under ‘recent’ . I made a right click and did ‘make a copy’ . The copy got saved on My Drive and I could download from the copy. I have had this problem since July and all suggestions on the web did not help.
