I am going Google Chrome, on Windows XP. Sometimes it crashed, and I want to know where the crash dump is located, just for fun.

As far as I know you cannot see crash dumps / logs unless you've started chrome with the

--enable-logging --v=1 (in Linux)

flag. Otherwise the only thing you see will be the crashID.

Please refer to this page for more information regarding chrome and debuging/logging.


Though I'd be a happy person if someone proved me wrong and showed a way for retrieving a crashdump / log based on crashID ( f5bf0cf6f184b9d2 )

There is no longer an 'under the hood' option anymore and hence the above answer is obsolete and no longer of any use. With a newer version of chrome you need to enable chrash logs by going to settings/privacy and enabling: Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google. After that you can check your crash logs here: chrome://crashes/

Correct answer here and was a great help. Thank you Ryan. –  Matt H. Oct 18 '13 at 20:28
in chrome://crashes there is only a list, not the crash dump... how to read these? –  David Krmpotic Oct 8 '14 at 14:59
