Do you think that it'll be a better experience?

I tried to reproduce what you mentioned, I downloaded code and removed manually, then I click "Open",
I can see the warning "The code sample has been moved. You need to download the sample again", but the "Open" button changes back to "Download" again to ask for downloading when the warning message disappear, is it the same on your side?
