Why You Might Want to See the Download Bar




The download bar is a useful feature that shows up at the bottom of your Chrome window when you download something. It allows you to see the name, size, speed, and remaining time of your downloads. It also lets you pause, resume, cancel, or open your downloads with a single click. You can also access the downloads page or folder from the download bar.


Seeing the download bar can help you manage your downloads better and avoid potential problems. For example, you can see if a download is taking too long or has failed. You can also check if a file is safe or not by clicking on the arrow icon next to it and choosing "Show in folder" or "Scan with antivirus".

Clear Browsing Data




Sometimes, your browsing data, such as cache and cookies, can cause problems with the download bar. To clear them, follow these steps:


  • Click on the three-dot icon at the top-right corner of Chrome and choose "Settings".



  • Scroll down and click on "Advanced".



  • Under "Privacy and security", click on "Clear browsing data".



  • Select "All time" as the time range and check "Cached images and files" and "Cookies and other site data". You can also check other items if you want.



  • Click on "Clear data" and wait for it to finish.



  • Restart Chrome and try downloading something again.



Disable New Downloads UI Feature




Chrome has an experimental feature called "New Downloads UI" that changes the appearance of the download bar. However, this feature may not work well for some users and may hide the download bar. To disable it, follow these steps:


  • Type chrome://flags in the address bar and press Enter.



  • Type "New Downloads UI" in the search box and find the flag with that name.



  • Click on the drop-down menu next to it and choose "Disabled".



  • Click on "Relaunch" at the bottom of the page and wait for Chrome to restart.



  • Try downloading something again and see if the download bar shows up.

Update Chrome Version




Another possible reason why the download bar is not showing up is that your Chrome version is outdated. Updating Chrome can fix any bugs or glitches that may affect the download bar. To update Chrome, follow these steps:


  • Click on the three-dot icon at the top-right corner of Chrome and choose "Help" and then "About Google Chrome".



  • Chrome will automatically check for updates and show you the current version number.



  • If there is an update available, click on "Relaunch" to install it and restart Chrome.



  • Try downloading something again and see if the download bar shows up.



Disable or Remove Extensions




Some extensions may interfere with the download bar and prevent it from showing up. To disable or remove extensions that may cause this problem, follow these steps:


  • Click on the three-dot icon at the top-right corner of Chrome and choose "More tools" and then "Extensions".



  • You will see a list of all the extensions you have installed in Chrome.



  • Find the extensions that may affect the download bar, such as ad blockers, download managers, or security tools.



  • Toggle off the switch next to them to disable them, or click on "Remove" to uninstall them.



  • Restart Chrome and try downloading something again.



Check Antivirus Software Settings




Sometimes, your antivirus software may block or hide the download bar for security reasons. To check and adjust your antivirus settings, follow these steps:


  • Open your antivirus software and go to its settings or options menu.



  • Look for any features or options that may affect the download bar, such as web protection, browser integration, or firewall.



  • Disable or modify these features or options to allow the download bar to show up in Chrome.



  • Restart Chrome and try downloading something again.



Fix IDM Extension Not Showing Download Bar




If you use Internet Download Manager (IDM) as your download manager, you may have noticed that the IDM extension does not show the download bar in Chrome. This is because IDM has its own download panel that replaces the Chrome download bar. However, if you want to see the Chrome download bar instead of the IDM panel, you can fix this by following these steps:


  • Open IDM and go to its settings or options menu.



  • Click on "Downloads" and then "Options".



  • Go to the "General" tab and uncheck "Use advanced browser integration".



  • Click on "OK" and restart IDM and Chrome.



  • Try downloading something again and see if the Chrome download bar shows up.



How to Always Show the Download Button in Chrome




If you want to always see the download button in Chrome, you can customize your toolbar and enable it. The download button allows you to access your downloads page with one click. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Right-click on an empty space on your toolbar and choose "Customize toolbar".



  • A menu will pop up with various icons that you can add or remove from your toolbar.



  • Find the icon that looks like a downward arrow with a line under it. This is the download button.



  • Drag and drop it to your desired position on your toolbar.



  • Click on "Done" to save your changes.



How to Access Your Downloads in Chrome




If you want to access your downloads in Chrome, you have two options: open the downloads page or open the downloads folder. Here are the steps for each option:


Open the downloads page




The downloads page shows you a list of all your downloads in Chrome. You can also search, sort, filter, or delete your downloads from this page. To open it, follow these steps:


  • Click on the three-dot icon at the top-right corner of Chrome and choose "Downloads". Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+J on your keyboard.



  • You will see a new tab with your downloads page.



  • You can click on any download to open it, or click on the arrow icon next to it for more options.
