I'm missing the download bar in Chrome. The bar that showed up each time I downloaded a file. (Not CTRL+J).

chrome://flags in the URL bar. If a page loads look for 'New Downloads UI'. Disable it if it's enabled.
P.S: These options might not be available in your Chrome version.

After I deleted/moved these files elsewhere, the download bar re-appeared. :)
From what I can see, this feature isn't built into Chrome. I downloaded and extension that shows speed as well as manages the downloads folder. Here's the link
