What is the download bar and why is it useful?




The download bar is a feature of Google Chrome that appears at the bottom of the window when you download a file. It shows the file name, size, speed, and remaining time of your download. It also lets you pause, resume, cancel, or open your downloads with a single click. You can also access your download history by clicking on the menu icon (three dots) on the right side of the bar.


The download bar is useful because it gives you a quick and convenient way to manage your downloads without leaving your current tab. You can also see if your downloads are completed or not, and if there are any errors or interruptions. The download bar also helps you save space on your screen, as it only appears when you download something and disappears when you close it.


How to show the download bar in Chrome by default




By default, Google Chrome should show the download bar at the bottom of the window whenever you download a file. However, if this is not happening for some reason, you can try these steps to enable it:


  • Open Google Chrome and click on the menu icon (three dots) at the top right corner.



  • Select Settings from the drop-down menu.



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



  • Under Downloads, make sure that the option "Show in-folder button when a download starts" is checked.



  • Close and reopen Google Chrome and try downloading a file again.



If this does not work, you may need to check for other issues that may be affecting your download bar, which we will discuss later in this article.
