It bothers me that when I download something in Google Chrome it appears on the bar on the bottom of the screen until I close it or clear "downloaded" list. I used to have extension installed that automatically cleared "downloaded" list every few seconds, but it seems like this extension got removed from store and is no longer visible in my Google Chrome. At the time of writing this the latest and installed on my PC version of Google Chrome is 71. Said extension worked when I had Google Chrome version 6x, I don't remember exactly, but it was sixty something.

Is there any way to do that with Google Chrome 71? Something like a tweak of advanced settings? I am looking for Linux solution mainly, but I guess that if there is a solution it would be for Google Chrome on all platforms.

This extension looks like the one you might be looking for:

Clear Downloads - Google Chrome

Bear in mind it will also clear your downloads list (as well as the bar along the bottom).

  • Thanks, it is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted it to clear my downloads list too :)

In the Clear route information segment, click Select to erase. At that point, make a rundown of choices that incorporate the perusing history and store information, and afterward click Delete. Musical drama enables you to just choose information types and erase them

  • Sorry but I don't think I understand your answer. Seems like you translated Google Chrome interface from your language to english? Because I don't know what you mean by "Clear route information" or "Musical drama". And I was looking for a way to automatically clear download history, not manually. But nonetheless Rowan Richards answered my question with "Clear Downloads" plugin :)
