I'm using Tor browser to download a file from a .com website. Can the website track/identify my original IP address.

Does Tor hide real my IP address during the download ?

    Yes, Tor hides your IP address. However the file may very well be malicious and since you'll open it outside of Tor it may leak your public IP address and prove that both the Tor exit node and your real IP are yours, thus blowing up your anonymity. – André Borie May 29 '16 at 15:31

Tor hide your identity, hide your ip and Tor is much safe. Anyway.
Teorically anyone can found your real IP with a virus/malware, the real ip can be found with exit node.

    I don't quite think that the user expected a "yes" answer. Some of your facts lack detail – John K May 29 '16 at 20:10
