If the Chrome download bubble is enabled in your Chrome, the Chrome download bar will disappear by default. If you want to get the Chrome download bar back, you need to disable the Chrome download bubble.

In addition, if you want to recover your lost downloaded files, you can use MiniTool Power Data Recovery. This professional data recovery software can recover all kinds of files from different types of data storage devices. With the free edition of this software, you can recover up to 1 GB of files without paying any cent.

Stella has been working in MiniTool Software as an English Editor for more than 7 years. Her articles mainly cover the fields of data recovery including storage media data recovery and phone data recovery, YouTube videos download, partition management, and video conversions.

So this user could download documents. A small animation would point downward to indicate a download was in progress. The downloaded document would appear in the actual Downloads folder. But no download status bar would appear on Chrome itself.

Google is testing the new design on some users, hence not all users experience the new downloads bubble yet. Now, if you have not received the new design and want to use it, then you can use the steps below to enable it. Or if you have received the new design and absolutely hate it, then you can also follow the steps below to go back to the old design.

Every Web browser has the ability to download files from sites on the web, Google Chrome is no different. When you start a download, Chrome shows its progress at the bottom of the shelf with options to pause, cancel, open when the download is complete and always open a certain file type.

Final words: Google has replaced the Chrome browser Downloads shelf at the bottom with a new button on the toolbar. The Downloads pop-up shows download progress and offer context menu options for each download to act on. The feature is currently available in Chrome 102 Canary. According to the release schedule, Chrome 102 is expected to be available to the public on May 24.

I've literally looked everywhere and have seen many ask this with no solution. How do I enable the downloads bar at the bottom of the screen in Chrome?!?!? I recently got a new work laptop and it's gone. Please help!!

This actually performs fine except in one case: when you click on a PDF link on this app and it downloads to the browser, then opens the PDF in a new tab instead of system viewer (if that is the user's browser setting). Then when closing the tab and going back to the app's tab, it spends an inordinate amount of time on resize logic (normal resize logic timing from click dragging window corner is 1-3s, this is like 15-20s)

I think multiple resizes may be triggered simultaneously when the downloads bar pops into the page and the new tab opens. There is already a very large (1500ms) debouncer in place but maybe something about opening a new tab / the download bar resizing instead of click-drag resizing makes the debouncer not apply in this case) and causes this huge slowdown when closing the PDF and going back to the app tab.

The path I'm trying is: i want to detect a resize that is from the downloads bar as opposed to for other reasons (maybe the y delta being exactly the same as downloads bar height?? is there a way to do that?) and just return false, we dont care much if that 50-100px is not adjusted for and when they close it, it will resize normally anyway.

In some quick tests, a simple canvas in a div with auto-resize scales when the browser (tested Chrome and Firefox, Explorer always an outlier) shows the bar. Initial scale - new scale) * original width = pixels different.

I need to ensure that the download completes before an action is taken on the file. I tried implementing On Element Appear activity to achieve this objective (Please check the attached image). Now the problem is that the UiPath robot is not able to detect the download bar at the bottom of chrome browser. I made sure that under google chrome settings, it asks each time before download and that the bar shows up every time a file is downloaded. But in case of UiPath execution, upon download, the bar appears momentarily and disappears.

Best Approach would be to Use Actions class in this case. The Element you need to interact with after the download bar is visible will be accessible with Actions class methods such as moveToElement().

One way to solve this would be to set up a custom chrome profile in which you disable the download prompt, save it to a specific location inside your project, then use to pass as an argument to ChromeOptions.

Yes, there is a way to disable the download bar in Chrome using Selenium. You can use the ChromeOptions class to add the argument "disable-features=DownloadUI" to the ChromeOptions object, which will disable the download bar. Here's an example:

AutoHideDownloadsBar is another extension that fully disables the download shelf as soon as you finish installing it. However, it does contain a few additional options that you can use to customize how the extension works. And they are worth checking out.

Start by right-clicking the extension icon and selecting Options. On the Settings pop-up that then shows up, you can go about modifying the various options listed within. They are pretty much self-explanatory, so do spend some time playing around with them.

I am using chrome browser to test my web application. In my test case xml file is downloaded and file appears in download bar once the download is complete. Is there any way to close that download bar?

Alternatively, since you already have the Mac App Store open when downloading a file from it, you can also keep an eye on downloads from within its confines. For new apps, you'll need to click through to an app's page. Below the blue Installing button is a progress bar that estimates how many minutes remain before the download is complete. When updating apps, you can see their progress on the Updates tab.

For files you download not from the Mac App Store but from the internet, the Launchpad offers no help. If you've dragged your Downloads folder to the Dock, then you can mouse over it to see a progress bar of a file currently being downloaded. Unlike the Launchpad, the Downloads folder doesn't show you the MB count when you mouse over its icon.

Google offers a lot of features to help you focus and improve productivity on Chrome browser, and recent versions have made efforts to streamline things a bit. One such important change is the downloads counter shifting from the bottom bar to a drop-down menu next to the address bar, much like on Microsoft Edge. As a part of its grand 2023 redesign, Google Chrome is now testing a toggle that lets you turn off pop-ups for completed downloads.

On current versions of Chrome, active downloads are usually visible in the upper right corner under the Downloads icon next to the address bar. When a file finishes downloading, Chrome alerts you with a floating pop-up under the Downloads icon. Popular Chrome feature researcher Leopeva64 recently spotted Google testing a new toggle in the Settings menu of Chrome Canary (v114) to control this behavior.

Located under the overflow menu > Settings > Downloads, you need to keep this toggle on to retain the current default behavior. Switching turns off the pop-ups, leaving a colored Downloads icon as the only indicator of successful completion. The change may not be ideal if you want to get a heads up the moment a file is downloaded, but it can also help avoid distracting notifications when you want to focus and get work done in the browser. That's especially true for small files like images, which would keep interrupting your workflow with every finished download.

When clicking on an application or desktop to launch via Citrix Workspace or Citrix Storefront on an Internet Browser (not within Citrix Workspace App) and an ".ica" file shows in the download bar on the bottom left please follow these steps to automatically open said file: ICA file is downloaded during the process. After the ICA file is downloaded, enable the browser to open similar files automatically.Note: Instructions below are similar for other OS's when using Google Chrome, Firefox, or Edge Browsers.

I have a data table that has a row of buttons with download format options. When one of the buttons is clicked, I want to display some sort of message to indicate that the download preparation process has started and is in progress. This message is to display while the program retrieves the data and prepares it for the browser to download.
