Tips and tricks for getting the download bar at the bottom of google chrome


How to Get the Download Bar at the Bottom of Google Chrome




Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers in the world, and for good reason. It offers fast performance, a sleek design, and a wide range of features and extensions. One of these features is the download bar, which appears at the bottom of your browser window when you download a file from the internet.


The download bar is a handy tool that lets you see the progress, status, and location of your downloads. You can also pause, resume, cancel, or open your downloads from the download bar. However, some users may not know how to access or customize this feature, or they may encounter some problems with it. In this article, we will show you how to get the download bar at the bottom of Google Chrome, and how to troubleshoot some common issues with it.

What is the Download Bar and Why is it Useful?




The download bar is a feature that is enabled by default in Chrome. From the Chrome download bar, you can see the name of the file that is downloading, the size of the file, how big the file has been downloaded, how much download time has left, and the status of the download (ed) file.


The download bar is useful because it allows you to monitor and manage your downloads without having to open a separate window or tab. You can also access your downloads folder by clicking on the "Show in folder" icon on the right side of the download bar. This way, you can easily find and organize your downloaded files.


How to Enable or Disable the Download Bar in Chrome Settings




If you want to turn on or off the download bar in Chrome, you can do so by changing a simple setting in your browser. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Open Google Chrome and click on the three-dot icon at the top right corner of your browser window.



  • Select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.



  • Scroll down and click on "Advanced" to expand more options.



  • Under "Downloads", toggle on or off the switch next to "Show a download bar when downloading files".



If you turn off this option, you will not see the download bar when you download a file. Instead, you will see a small arrow icon at the top right corner of your browser window, which indicates that a download is in progress. You can click on this icon to view and manage your downloads.


How to Show or Hide the Download Bar with Keyboard Shortcuts




If you prefer using keyboard shortcuts instead of mouse clicks, you can also show or hide the download bar with a simple keystroke. Here are the keyboard shortcuts for different operating systems:


  • Windows: Ctrl + J



  • Mac: Command + Shift + J



  • Linux: Ctrl + J



  • Chrome OS: Ctrl + J



Pressing these keys will open or close your downloads page in a new tab. If you have any downloads in progress, you will see them at the bottom of this tab. You can also access other options such as clearing your downloads history, changing your downloads location, or opening your downloads folder from this page.


How to Customize the Download Bar with Extensions




If you want to have more control over how your download bar looks and functions, you can use some extensions that are designed for this purpose. Extensions are small programs that add extra features or functionality to your browser. You can find and install extensions from the Chrome Web Store. Here are some examples of extensions that can help you customize your download bar:
