Step 4. From File Explorer, you can navigate to the Netflix download folder by directly copying and pasting the path into the explore box. The full path is: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Packages\4DF9E0F8.Netflix_mcm4njqhnhss8\LocalState\offlineInfo\downloads.

Here [USERNAME] is the Windows folder with your current username.

Now the folder is opened, but please note, there are no file names that help you identify the movie or show. All files in that folder are unknown data files, and cannot be recognized by any media players except Netflix app. So even though you find the location, all you can do is manage your drive space by deleting those files, rather than copying the downloaded files to your portable devices. That’s really a sad story.
