The fastest way to access the downloads page.
Downloads Button is just a shortcut to Chrome Downloads page. It's quite simple extension, but could be a great time saver for people who download a lot.
It is an alternative of the "Downloads" menu item. Install the Downloads Button from the chrome web store, and you'll get a nice "Downloads" icon added to the toolbar. Click the icon and it will open the downloads page.
It's just a shortcut but still -- there are some options available: you can set the button to open the downloads page in new tab or in the current tab and, if you want, you can add it to the context menu.
Get it on Chrome Web Store »
Install the extension from the above link. Downloads icon will be added to your browser:
Click on the icon and you'll open the browser's "downloads" page:
If you want to modify the way this button works, there are some options available: you can set the button to open the target page in new tab or in the current tab and, if you want, you can add it to the context menu. Click below to see how to access the options page:

If you want to remove the downloads button from your browser, just right-click on the icon and select "Remove from Chrome...":
-- Because with the downloads button added to the toolbar the toolbar you’ll need only one click, which is 50% faster :)
-- This extension doesn’t “eat” memory. In technical terms, it uses non-persistent background page, which means Chrome doesn’t need to reserve memory for the download button (check the Chrome Task Manager if you don’t trust us: when you click on the donloads icon it will start the extension, open the downloads page and release the memoryit right after that)
-- You could, but you’ll need more clicks to access the bookmark from the menu or you’ll need to have the bookmarks bar open. For people like me the bookmarks bar is not a good choice (it takes from the vertical space of the browser) and the toolbar icon is more convinient.
-- Yes, you can remove it with literally two clicks (just right-click on the downloads button and select “Remove from Chrome”) -- see the screenshot above
-- Right-click on the downloads icon and select “Options”.
-- Right-click on the extension’s icon and select “Options”, then uncheck the respective checkbox (the first one)
-- Go to the options page (see above) and check the respective checkbox (“Add settings button to context menu”)
-- Currently you can’t, but in the next version (coming soon) we’ll add this functionality
-- You can, but in future it will be possible only on Chrome OS devices. To do that just install our Downloads Button app
