Extension Hide Download Bar: The Best Way to Keep Your Chrome Screen Clean
My project is to not allow the download bar to auto popup, so I tried to Google search. Many results are shown using Chrome Extensions, but I don't want to use Chrome Extensions to solve the problem. Users are using Chrome versions 77-84 at the moment.

There is a flag currently in version 103.0.5060.134 called "Enable download bubble" (#download-bubble) that prevents the download bar from appearing at the bottom of the screen and replaces it with behavior similar to Firefox.
This may not be helpful to the original question author because I don't know when this flag first appeared. It's not the same as automatically hiding the downloads bar, but for me it was sufficient to solve my problem so I figured I'd post for general/future reference.
AutoHideDownloadsBar is another extension that fully disables the download shelf as soon as you finish installing it. However, it does contain a few additional options that you can use to customize how the extension works. And they are worth checking out.
Start by right-clicking the extension icon and selecting Options. On the Settings pop-up that then shows up, you can go about modifying the various options listed within. They are pretty much self-explanatory, so do spend some time playing around with them.

How to disable Google Chrome download bar from popping up every time I download something? I prefer to ctrl+j to see my downloads status when I actually want it, not to see a log of every thing I save all the time.
In my current Chromium (47.0.2509.0), in chrome://flags, you can set "Download Status in Notification Center" to "Enabled" which will display downloads in a Notification popup instead of the downloads bar.
I set saveAs:false for chrome.downloads.download so that I do not get saveAs dialog. But when download starts, download bar at the bottom of the browser gets opened and all list of downloads puts into it. This clutters the download bar and Chrome interface.
Consider an alternative (if more technically challenging) approach of "downloading" through XHR to a temporary HTML5 FileSystem, forming an archive file, and then calling chrome.downloads on that. May not work if you need all the files immediately unpacked.
Edit: the suggestion about using an extension for this, is ridiculous and exasperating. One of the main attractions about this browser is the supposed privacy and security it brings. Pushing third-party extensions for something this mundane is just sad user relations.
Ever since the last update, every time I download something on Firefox this download tab pops up every time when the new download is complete.Ive tried disabling every extension, Ive tried the about:config solution I found on this page, setting it to "false" and I havent been able to find anything in tools or settings.. but nothing disables it and its getting annoying. Ive had Firefox for years and this has never happened before.
I've been experiencing this since one of the recent updates. After I download one item, the panel opens to tell me the download is done, but when I'm done with the panel, it will randomly appear again (repeatedly), until I restart firefox.
I also experience download panel appearing at the end of a successful download (which is ok) and then out-of-the-blue again and again, when nothing is downloading. It is very distracting and confusing, so for now I decided to switch it off completly. I am using Linux, Fedora 36 to be exact.
FWIW, here's another dissatisfied user wondering who conceived of this, who approved it, and why there isn't a toggle for it in the right-click popup of the download toolbar entry (defaulting to OFF, of course, because nobody but a mother can love a UI widget which continually gets in the way). It's not only a tremendous annoyance which needs to be removed or made easier to disable, but it hinders use of certain web pages. e.g. in Google Photos, when individually selecting and downloading multiple images, this popup keeps blocking my access to the image i'd like to select for download, forcing me to click it out of the way between every image before doing what i'm trying to do.
This "feature" is a total failure and should of course not be enabled by default. it is annoying, it is an obstacle that interferes with the workflow.If there is a need for such a thing (to have the downloads list automatically available for click), the chrome solution (the bottom downloads banner or whatever it is called) is better. Copy that, there is no shame in that. Or is it copyrighted or something?
The features that Visual Studio Code includes out-of-the-box are just the start. VS Code extensions let you add languages, debuggers, and tools to your installation to support your development workflow. VS Code's rich extensibility model lets extension authors plug directly into the VS Code UI and contribute functionality through the same APIs used by VS Code. This article explains how to find, install, and manage VS Code extensions from the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
Each extension in the list includes a brief description, the publisher, the download count, and a five star rating. You can select the extension item to display the extension's details page where you can learn more.
An extension is uniquely identified by its publisher and extension IDs. If you select the TODO Highlight extension, you will see the Extension details page, where you can find the extension ID, in this case, wayou.vscode-todo-highlight. Knowing the extension ID can be helpful if there are several similarly named extensions.
Select the Install button, and VS Code will download and install the extension from the Marketplace. When the installation is complete, the Install button will be replaced with a Manage gear button.
This has been just one example of how to install and use an extension. The VS Code Marketplace has thousands of extensions supporting hundreds of programming languages and tasks. Everything from full featured language support for Java, Python, Go, and C++ to simple extensions that create GUIDs, change the color theme, or add virtual pets to the editor.
If an extension is an Extension Pack, the Extension Pack section will display which extensions will be installed when you install the pack. Extension Packs bundle separate extensions together so they can be easily installed at one time.
If you know the exact identifier for an extension you're looking for, you can use the @id: prefix, for example @id:octref.vetur. Additionally, to filter or sort results, you can use the filter and sort commands, detailed below.
VS Code makes it easy to manage your extensions. You can install, disable, update, and uninstall extensions through the Extensions view, the Command Palette (commands have the Extensions: prefix) or command-line switches.
To uninstall an extension, select the Manage gear button at the right of an extension entry and then choose Uninstall from the dropdown menu. This will uninstall the extension and prompt you to reload VS Code.
If you don't want to permanently remove an extension, you can instead temporarily disable the extension by clicking the gear button at the right of an extension entry. You can disable an extension globally or just for your current Workspace. You will be prompted to reload VS Code after you disable an extension.
If you want to quickly disable all installed extensions, there is a Disable All Installed Extensions command in the Command Palette and More Actions (...) dropdown menu.
Similarly if you have disabled an extension (it will be in the Disabled section of the list and marked Disabled), you can re-enable it with the Enable or Enable (Workspace) commands in the dropdown menu.
VS Code checks for extension updates and installs them automatically. After an update, you will be prompted to reload VS Code. If you'd rather update your extensions manually, you can disable auto-update with the Disable Auto Updating Extensions command that sets the extensions.autoUpdate setting to false. If you don't want VS Code to even check for updates, you can set the extensions.autoCheckUpdates setting to false.
If you have extensions auto-update disabled, you can quickly look for extension updates by using the Show Outdated Extensions command that uses the @outdated filter. This will display any available updates for your currently installed extensions. Select the Update button for the outdated extension and the update will be installed and you'll be prompted to reload VS Code. You can also update all your outdated extensions at one time with the Update All Extensions command. If you also have automatic checking for updates disabled, you can use the Check for Extension Updates command to check which of your extensions can be updated.
To dismiss a recommendation, select on the extension item to open the Details page and then select the Manage gear button to display the context menu. Select the Ignore Recommendation menu item. Ignored recommendations will no longer be recommended to you.
VS Code extensions may have very different configurations and requirements. Some extensions contribute settings to VS Code, which can be modified in the Settings editor. Other extensions may have their own configuration files. Extensions may also require installation and setup of additional components like compilers, debuggers, and command-line tools. Consult the extension's README (visible in the Extensions view details page) or go to the extension page on the VS Code Marketplace (click on the extension name in the details page). Many extensions are open source and have a link to their repository on their Marketplace page.
