Remove the Chrome Download Bar with These Simple Steps

My project is to not allow the download bar to auto popup, so I tried to Google search. Many results are shown using Chrome Extensions, but I don't want to use Chrome Extensions to solve the problem. Users are using Chrome versions 77-84 at the moment.

do not show download bar in chrome


There is a flag currently in version 103.0.5060.134 called "Enable download bubble" (#download-bubble) that prevents the download bar from appearing at the bottom of the screen and replaces it with behavior similar to Firefox.

This may not be helpful to the original question author because I don't know when this flag first appeared. It's not the same as automatically hiding the downloads bar, but for me it was sufficient to solve my problem so I figured I'd post for general/future reference.

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.

Why does it not show the download progress for a file that I am serving through nodejs? Does it have to do with how I pipe in chunks to the HTTP response? The file must be served through streaming, since it is very large. I have tried to modify the headers to include content-length, but then I got a 502 error from my server.

turn off downloads toolbar in google chrome solve your problem. It internally uses res.sendFile() to transfer the file. sendFile does some extra stuff, like setting the proper HTTP Content-Type header based on the filename and Content-Length. When you set "Content-Type" : "application/octet-stream" extra header "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" Will be added by express.

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.

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.

Adding --force-dark-mode to CHROMIUM_FLAGS variable in /etc/chromium-browser/default do the trick :D !!!Thanks to this post:How to change the color of Chromium (only chrome) downloads bar in a GTK3 theme?

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.

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.

Chrome tries to make personalized suggestions that are useful to you. For this, Chrome uses the sites you have visited from your local browsing history. On Android, the most popular languages of the sites you visited may also be sent to Google to provide suggestions in languages you prefer to read, and the device display DPI may be sent to format content for your device. To save data, Chrome may additionally send a hash of the content that Google provided to you the last time, so that you only download content when there is something new.

To warn you about potentially dangerous files, like the picture shown above, Chrome checks the URL of potentially dangerous file types you download against a list of URLs that have been verified. Potentially dangerous file types include both executables and commonly-abused document types. This list is stored locally on your computer and updated regularly. Chrome does not send information to Google for files you download from URLs in this list, or if the file is signed by a verified publisher. For all other unverified potentially dangerous file downloads, Chrome sends Google the information needed to help determine whether the download is harmful, including some or all of the following: information about the full URL of the site or file download, all related referrers and redirects, code signing certificates, file hashes, and file header information. Chrome may then show a warning like the one pictured above.

If Chrome detects that your settings have been tampered with, Chrome reports the URL of the last downloaded potentially dangerous file, and information about the nature of the possible tampering, to the Safe Browsing service.

Chrome may also download and run a binary executable (e.g., as part of the software update or to improve Safe Browsing protection). These executables are cryptographically signed and verified before execution. Chrome may download further static resources like dictionaries on demand to reduce the size of the installer.

In order to measure the success rate of Google Chrome downloads and installations of the Windows version of Google Chrome, a randomly-generated token is included with Google Chrome's installer. This token is sent to Google during the installation process to confirm the success of that particular installation. A new token is generated for every install. It is not associated with any personal information, and is deleted once Google Chrome runs and checks for updates the first time.

For the desktop version of Chrome, you can opt-out of sending this data to Google by uninstalling Chrome, and installing a version downloaded directly from To opt-out of sending the RLZ string in ChromeOS, press Ctrl + Alt + T to open the crosh shell, type rlz disable followed by the enter key, and then reboot your device.

The paragraph above describes the use of your personal browsing history. Google also uses aggregated and anonymized synchronized browsing data to improve other Google products and services. For example, we use this information to improve Google Search by helping to detect mobile friendly pages, pages which have stopped serving content, and downloads of malware.

On Android devices, an app developer may use a Custom Tab to show web content when you click on a URL from their app. A Custom Tab may look different from a regular Chrome tab, for example it may have app-specified visual style, and the absence of an editable URL bar. Despite the different visual style a Custom Tab may have, the data sent and received in the Custom Tab, such as cookies, saved passwords and browsing history function the same way they do in a normal Chrome tab. The Custom Tab is an app-customized view using the same underlying user profile.

The effect of Do Not Track depends on whether a website responds to the request, and how the request is interpreted. For example, some websites may respond to this request by showing you ads that aren't based on other websites you've visited. Many websites will still collect and use your browsing data - for example, to improve security; to provide content, services, ads and recommendations on their websites; and to generate reporting statistics.

This article falls into the "Chrome does odd things when downloading files" category. Every so often, I like to write articles that simply document weird problems and their solutions/workarounds. I figure that if I've encountered the issue and spent time trying to figure it out, some of you will, too. So this is for the folks who spent the last 30 or 40 minutes trying to Google an answer for why Chrome is doing odd things with their downloads and hoping for an answer.

My wife does our little firm's bookkeeping. This means that every week or so, she has to download a whole bunch of bank, credit card, and vendor statements. She files those on our Bookkeeping Share on the Synology NAS, so we have them for taxes, reporting, or any other fiducially responsible need that crops up. She has been doing this for as long as there have been online statements.
