Image from store Always Clear Downloads 2
Description from store This extensions fixes the original Always Clear Downloads (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cpbmgiffkljiglnpdbljhlenaikojapc) that can no longer be installed since Google discontinued support for extensions using manifest.json version 1 (see https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/manifestVersion) * Version 2.1 - This version modernizes the code to use the most recent Chrome APIs. Should also prevent the extension from going inactive. This version requires more permissions so you will have to re-enable the extension. The new permission simply allows the extension to access the download shelf. * Versions 2.1.1 & 2.1.2 - Misc. bug fixes * Version 2.1.3 - Clear download list along with hiding the download shelf. * Version 2.1.4 - Fix issue with multiple downloads * Version 2.1.5 - Removed download shelf permission; Updated manifest to version 3 The source for this extension can be found at https://github.com/tsuliwaensis/AlwaysClear --- This Google Chrome extension makes up for the fact that Chrome does not have an option to keep its download list clear at all times. You can clear the downloads list yourself by hand, but Chrome currently doesn't have an option to automatically clear it for you. This extension does it for you automatically. This extension works in a very simple way: Every five seconds, the downloads list is cleared out for you. Don't worry, the files you downloaded are still there, and in-progress downloads are not harmed. Chrome's internal list simply gets cleaned up for you every five seconds.

  • (2021-03-18) Piotr Sitek: It's fine ... But it also clears all files from the Chrome download list (ctrl+J). This is something I don't want from the app. I just want to clear downloads from a bottom of my Chrome and thats it. Maybe the programmer team can fix it?
  • (2021-02-19) RYO: 画像をダウンロードする度毎回右下にカーソルを持っていかなくてよくなるのでとても便利です。
  • (2020-02-05) Omkar P: awesome thanks for making this
  • (2019-11-25) Chris Vydas: stopped working for no reason
  • (2019-11-14) Leo Cat: BRILLIANT. This is one of the first thing I install everytime I download Chrome anywhere. Been using for months and it's so simple yet so useful.
  • (2019-09-06) Davy: Works OK but it's really annoying that if I am downloading multiple files (videos) at the same time, it hides the download bar as soon as the first one finishes, so I can't see the progress of the other files that are still in the process of downloading. Would prefer that it not hide the bar if ANY files are still being downloaded. Can this be fixed? [Version 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

  • (2018-10-23) Regina K: Works as expected. Thank you.
  • (2018-09-23) Tony Fabris: This is an updated version of an extension which was originally written by me. When Google changed their API requirements, I never updated the extension to fix it, and eventually my version got removed from the Chrome Web Store. This new author has taken up the mantle, and re-released it with the necessary updates, and also made it open source on GitHub. It works perfectly for me when I tried it on the following systems: - Mac Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) - Windows Version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) Please note! There is an unfixed bug in the Google Chrome API which causes this extension to always reset the downloads folder to the default folder. This is a bug in the Chrome API, not a bug in the "Always Clear Downloads 2" extension. For instance, if you configure Chrome's default download folder to "c:\my_downloads" in Chrome's Advanced Settings, then this extension will keep resetting the folder to be that. If you download a file to a different target location using "Save link as...", and pick a different location such as "c:\temp\testfolder", then instead of that new location being the new default, this extension will cause downloads to go back to "c:\my_downloads" on the next download. Personally I like that behavior, but sometimes that's different from what people expect. I filed a bug with Chrome about it, but after nobody touched it for a few years, it got closed/ignored: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=158965 Other than that, this extension works great.
  • (2018-07-26) OldTrenzas: perfecto para que lo que se descargue se quite de la pantalla, menos obstrucción más comodidad.
  • (2018-07-25) Александр Бочаров: При отмене закачки, файл остается в списке и не удаляется автоматически. Думаю стоит доработать этот момент. If you cancel the download, the file remains in the list and is not automatically deleted. I think it's worth to refine this point.
  • (2018-07-18) DYLAN H: works for me, version 2.1.3 on the newest chrome (67.0.3396.99 (Official Build) (64-bit)) Thanks!
  • (2018-06-17) Jarno “Jakke” Käpylä: ei poista lataushistoriaa, ainoastaan sulkee ärsyttävän palkin
  • (2018-06-16) Domnul Silviu: Not working
  • (2018-06-13) sin sin: please add `chrome.downloads.erase({state: "complete"});`! otherwise it only hides download shelf...
  • (2018-06-11) Stefan Schulz: Works as it should. Thank you!
  • (2018-06-07) Kārlis Pētersons: Not working on Version 67.0.3396.79 (Official Build) (64-bit)

  • (2018-05-30) chups 75: 1の時はめちゃくちゃお世話になり、2にバージョンあげたが、まだDL中のものがあり、新規に例えば容量小さいのをDLし終えると全部クリアされる。まだ終わってないものは残るようにしてほしい。
