Troubleshooting the Chrome Download Bar Not Appearing Problem


How to Fix Download Bar is Not Showing in Chrome




Have you ever downloaded a file in Google Chrome and wondered where it went? If you are used to seeing a download bar at the bottom of your browser window, you may be frustrated when it does not show up. The download bar is a handy feature that lets you monitor and manage your downloads without leaving your current tab. You can see the progress, speed, size, and time remaining of your downloads, as well as pause, resume, cancel, open, or delete them.


However, sometimes the download bar may not appear when you start a download in Chrome. This can be annoying and confusing, especially if you are not sure if your download is working or not. There are several possible reasons why this may happen, such as:

  • The cache in Chrome is corrupted.



  • The Chrome version is outdated.



  • The recently installed extension removes the download bar.



  • The Chrome download bar is disabled by your antivirus software.



  • The Chrome download bar goes white due to your theme selected for Chrome.



  • The Chrome download bubble is enabled and the Chrome download bar is disabled by default.



  • You are in full screen mode and the download bar is hidden.



Fortunately, there are some easy and effective solutions that you can try to fix this issue and get your download bar back. In this article, we will show you how to:


  • Check your Chrome settings.



  • Exit full screen mode.



  • Update or reinstall Chrome.



  • Disable or remove problematic extensions.



Solution 1: Check your Chrome settings




One of the first things you should do when you encounter the download bar issue is to check your Chrome settings. There are two options that you can try to enable or customize the download bar in Chrome.


Enable download notifications in Chrome




Chrome has a hidden feature that allows you to enable download notifications in your browser. These are pop-up messages that appear on the lower right corner of your screen when you start or finish a download. They can also show you the progress, speed, size, and time remaining of your downloads, as well as let you pause, resume, cancel, open, or delete them.


To enable download notifications in Chrome, follow these steps:


  • Open Chrome and type chrome://flags/#enable-download-notification in the address bar and press Enter.



  • You will see a page with a list of experimental features. Find the one that says Enable download notification and click on the drop-down menu next to it.



  • Select Enabled from the menu and then click on the Relaunch button at the bottom of the page to restart Chrome.



  • Now, whenever you download something in Chrome, you will see a download notification on the lower right corner of your screen. You can click on it to see more details or options for your download.



This option may be useful if you want to see your downloads without opening a new tab or window. However, it may also be annoying if you get too many notifications or if they interfere with your other tasks. You can disable this option anytime by following the same steps and selecting Disabled from the menu.


Customize the download bar in Chrome




Another option that you can try is to customize the download bar in Chrome. You can choose to show or hide the download button, the download bubble, and the download shelf in your browser. The download button is a small icon that appears on the right side of your address bar when you start a download. The download bubble is a small circle that appears on the left side of your address bar when you finish a download. The download shelf is the horizontal bar that appears at the bottom of your browser window when you start or finish a download.

  • Open Chrome and type chrome://settings/appearance in the address bar and press Enter.



  • You will see a page with a list of appearance settings. Find the one that says Show downloads button and toggle it on or off according to your preference.



  • If you toggle it on, you will see a download button on the right side of your address bar when you start a download. You can click on it to see your downloads or open them.



  • If you toggle it off, you will not see a download button on your address bar. You will only see a download bubble on the left side of your address bar when you finish a download. You can click on it to open your downloads or clear them.



  • You can also choose to show or hide the download shelf by clicking on the three dots icon on the right side of the download button or bubble and selecting Show in folder, Always open files of this type, Pause, Cancel, Open when done, or Show all.



  • If you select Show all, you will see the download shelf at the bottom of your browser window with all your downloads. You can also click on the X icon on the right side of the shelf to hide it.



  • If you select any other option, you will not see the download shelf in your browser window. You will only see your downloads in a new tab or window.



This option may be useful if you want to customize how you see and manage your downloads in Chrome. However, it may also be confusing if you are not familiar with the different icons and options for your downloads. You can change these settings anytime by following the same steps and toggling them on or off according to your preference.


Solution 2: Exit full screen mode




A simple but effective solution that may fix the download bar issue is to exit full screen mode in Chrome. Full screen mode is a feature that allows you to view a web page or video without any distractions from other tabs, windows, toolbars, or menus. However, it may also hide some important elements of your browser, such as the address bar, bookmarks bar, status bar, and yes, the download bar. Therefore, if you are in full screen mode and you start a download in Chrome, you may not see the download bar at all.


To exit full screen mode in Chrome, follow these steps:


  • If you are on Windows, press the F11 key on your keyboard. If you are on Mac, press the Command+Control+F keys on your keyboard.



  • You will see a message that says You've gone full screen and a button that says Exit full screen. Click on the button or press the same keys again to exit full screen mode.



  • Now, you should see your browser window with all the tabs, windows, toolbars, and menus as usual. You should also see the download bar at the bottom of your browser window when you start or finish a download.



This solution may be useful if you accidentally entered full screen mode or if you want to switch between full screen and normal mode quickly. However, it may also be inconvenient if you prefer to view we
