Is there a way to disable brave from downloading at all?

I was wondering if there’s a way to disable brave from downloading, cause I use another program to download from the internet (IDM) and often I get 2 auto-download one from brave and the other from the program and both of them eat a lot of my internet data and I just want my program to keep download and not the browser.

Brave Version : 1.67.119

You could probably do this with an extension: when a download is started, cancel it.

@cLAw,
There is no way to fully block downloads outside of using Group Policy. You can place a stop gap by opening Brave and going to Settings --> Downloads and ensuring that the Ask where to download each file before downloading is toggled “on”.
