Make Edge display file downloads at the bottom of the window

In order for Edge to display file downloads at the bottom of the browser window in Windows 10, you will add a parameter to the Edge shortcut on your desktop. Then, when you run Edge with this shortcut, the download bar will appear at the bottom, as it did before.

This method does not work for Mac because you cannot add shortcut parameters to Mac PC shortcuts.
