Cancel upload

    Every once in a while I will jump the gun and drag a whole whack of photos onto the upload screen ... only to realize moments later that these are the HUGE (2800+ pixels) versions and I meant to upload smaller versions. But now I have to wait until all of these are uploaded before I can delete them all. And since they are the huge versions, it takes forever!
    It would be great if there were a Cancel Upload button somewhere on that page, that could bail me out of my stupidity. The only other option I have found is to exit the browser, then restart it and log in again. A decent enough workaround, but far more time consuming than a simple cancel button.
    Thanks!

    Yes just happened to me. Had no idea there was no way to stop it.

    Please add me a cancel button!

    I had the same problem, it takes some time to delete an uploaded file, even if it's partially uploaded, I find it's name sometimes in the Plugin directory, so When upload i again I have to rename it or find the duplicated name and delete it, so it will be really better to add a cancel Button.

    Same here! I’m waiting for an upload to fail while I write this… What a waste of time. Please add the "Cancel Upload" button! Thanks…

    Yes, its a hack of a problem, and it happened to me a few times in the past.

    I read the bug you mentioned:

    I don't understand - It is acknowledged as a bug - but when is it going to be fixed ? The thread is from two years ago.
