Filmora: Downloading elements not working? (easy solution)

Downloading elements not working in Filmora?

Download stuck at 1%?

This tutorial will show you step by step how to solve the problem.

This solution also works for music (audio).

But first:

Before I found this solution, I encountered the same problem when trying to download elements (e.g., arrows, hearts, emojis, badges, etc.) in Filmora.

The elements would not download at all.

And:

Everytime I clicked on an element or the download arrow, the download got stuck at 1% and never completed.

Fortunately I found a solution which I will share with you on this page.

The first solution is for older versions of Filmora and the second solution is for the latest version of Filmora.

These solutions will work on Microsoft Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

2. Click on System and Security.
