Windows Vista: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\
(I supposed C is the Windows partition)

I don't have a AppData in Vista, or Local Settings either. I would like to clear out the temporary files. Can anyone tell me how to do that?

That's because they're Hidden Folder. Go type in "folder options" in to the start menu and then enable them. 

Or, substitute the path in to your address bar in windows explorer and press enter.

btw, you don't have to go to that directory to delete temporary files. Just go to the blue wrench menu >> clear browsing data, and tell it to delete your cache.

In Windows 7

C:\Users\(User Name which you have logged in with)\AppData\Local\Temp

Here you will find the saved streamed files

Look for the biggest file size copy it to an other folder and change the name as well as the file extension for eg fla46F1.tmp i was looking for this file its suppose to be an AVI file as i streamed a video.

I copied it to another folder and named it to dash.avi from fla46F1.tmp

It works try it your self.

All the streamed videos or audios are saved in this directory. All you need to do is copy it to the folder where you want it to be and change the name and file extension to its respective tyipe.

fla46F1 (file name)  
.tmp (extension)

Hope i was cleat enough for the people who don't know much about all this.

Once you have copied the files you need, delete all the temporary internet files using ccleaner its a freeware and works like a charm, deletes all the browsers temporary files, chache, junk files and all the unnecessary files.

Here is a lnk from where you can download the latest version:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner

It del around 1 to 2GB of junk files from my computer eveyday.

Once you have installed it and when you start the program you will see a tab named Run Cleaner click on it an it will del all the junk files from your PC.

If you have any questions about the options in left pane please do not hesitate to ask.

If you look at the drive where your windows is installed the free space keeps getting ssmaller and smaller and that is because of the Temporary internet files and junk files from the websites you access.

USING BROWSERS OWN CLEAR BROWSING DATA OR DELETE FILES etc. OPTIONS DOES NOT DELETE ALL THE UNNECESSARY FILES.

SO MY RECOMMENDATION IS USE CCLEANER (FREEWARE) ITS FREE.

C:\Users\USERNAMEHERE\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache  is where I found it.  I was looking for a swf file. I had to rename a 1.5mb file that was created at the same time I loaded the webpage with the embedded swf after I copied it to the desktop.   It started out with this name f_007006

Where Google Chrome keeps the temporary files while they are been downloaded?

Does Google Chrome tests the hard drive to see if there is enough space to save the downloaded files?

I'm downloading 20 giga of files and set one special hard drive to receive these files. But I can't see the temporary files anywhere.

Where (how) can one send suggestions to Google Chrome team to improve its download manager ???
Re: where google chrome save internet temporary files JackyH 7/11/11 4:25 PM
Hi @jborges21,

Your downloads are saved to wherever you designate downloads to be saved. To figure this out, go to wrench menu>options>under the hood>downloads>download location. Whatever is in the box, is where your downloads are being saved. Were you able download you 20 gigabytes of files? We are currently working on verification of disk space availability that is slated to be released in Chrome version 14 (we are currently on version 12); if you would like to follow progress, you can check here: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=42625

Also, if you are interested in giving feedback, you can either reply to this thread or visit the suggestions area of the forum here: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/label?lid=4b62763ab25c3274&hl=en

Re: where google chrome save internet temporary files JackyH 9/7/11 6:18 PM
Hi +sternresearch,

Try looking in this file path: C:\Users\(User Name which you have logged in with)\AppData\Local\Temp

Also, in regards to your question about losing your tabs, you can find you most recently opened tabs by going to the new tab page and clicking open the 8 most recently closed tabs. I hope that helps!

Cheers,
Jacky

Hi,

I looked at : C:\Users\(User Name which you have logged in with)\AppData\Local\Temp
   couldn't copy or move the file while Chrome was running
I looked at : C:\Users\USERNAMEHERE\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache
   Chrome is displaying the internet temporary files, BUT up to 28Mb, then they vanish from the list ??? even if it remain readable on the Chrome page (no further download)?
does any one can tell me how to increase the size of the TI files so we can save larger files?

Thxs
Clint

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

you dont need to change anything.
Re: where google chrome save internet temporary files Dr. Amresh Karn 6/29/13 3:52 AM
Hi!
Probably the path below could answer better,
C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash
Check it out....
Copy the largest size file (check out date n time modified in properties) into different directory and rename as ***.avi
enjoy it!
