Access contents of Google Chrome Cache Folder


Be default, the cache folder of Google Chrome is located under [User Profile]\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

You can access this folder to view contents storedin cache. To make this process easier, you can use small utility ‘ChromeCacheView’ that reads the cache folder of Google Chrome Web browser. It display list of files stored in cache along with attributes like URL, Content type, File size, Last accessed time, Expiration time, Server name, Server response etc.

You can select any file from the cache viewer and copy it for further use. This can handy in copying images, css files of websites you visit. Download Chrome CacheView [link]



  1. Thanks, great

  2. Tariq Jamil says

    you can use hobocopy to copy youtube and similar files from Chrome Cache before you clear it !!!!!

  3. just as i thought. google doesn’t want you to clean all cache/history/cookies. this is how they make money. sounds like a class action lawsuit to me.

  4. I had hoped for more from Google Chrome and its cache and am very sorry to find it has the same problems as the Internet Explorer cache – it DOES NOT fully empty even when I choose to delete all files.

    This is a total pain for a web developer, since simple changes to stylesheets or images are not always reflected when I refresh the page I am working on.

    As much as I am getting tired of Firefox and its endless bugs (which don’t affect my development), I have no choice other than to turn to it again.

  5. Hey,

    Could any one say me how the images are stored in GOOGLE CHROME BROWSER.

    I was wondering to know what technology might had been used to display those images.

    Thank You in advance…

  6. I think Google Chrome Cache Folder can contain not only useful info for further use, but also unnecessary and sometimes compromising data.
    How can I delete those those files on a regular basis? Is CCleaner helpful in this case?

    • Is CCleaner helpful in this case? Yes. As long as you have all instances of Google Chrome closed, CCleaner will allow you to clear the temporary files and cache it leaves behind.
