I don't think you can turn off the warning when downloading exe files
This is a discussion on I hate exe download warning within the Chrome Tips & Tricks section, part of the Google Chrome category: Hi! I don't know if this has already been asked, but: is there a way to have chrome don't ask ...
I don't know if this has already been asked, but:
is there a way to have chrome don't ask confirm every time i download an exe?
If i download a rar or a zip or everithing goes with no problem, but if i download an exe file it says it may be dangerous and if i'm sure and so on, and i have to confirm i am not a dumb. It's annoying..
How can i cut it off?
to be fair, it has a purpose - to stop idiots downloading and running crap that could mess up their computer. but i agree it is very annoying. They should at least have a command line switch to disable it.
Short after release i remember there wasn't such a thing. They added it later and i am waiting since then to an option to switch it off.
I mean, chrome is a product used mainly by expert ppl so i think there should be an option to cut of this annoying thing.
Another idea.. could i create an extension to do this? I'm good with programming..
i hate it too, much more about .js warnings
BETTER GMAIL for Google Chrome
Google Chrome Dev latest version
I would have to agree. atleast 50% of people useing Internet explore dont even know what a browser is, I say atleast cause i dont know stats..
I figure if someone was smart enough to install chrome they should be smart enough to know not to run unsafe .exe's...
Its safe to asume atleast 75% of chrome users are computer literate and know about the dangers of .exe's, but seriously how many .exes are you downloading for it to be that big of a deal?, asuming it is a huge deal and you download hundreds daily, you could always compile your own version of chromium, and do a text search for .exe inside the code till you find what ur lookin for..
then either remove it, or if your not that skilled replace it with a fake filetype (.fake, or sumthin)
well it actually helps you from downloading some particular viruses
so no flag can't stop this neither the extension (beta chrome) can work
safety is out there but google chrome is just down on the corner
i still kind of feel the warning is a good thing, as sometimes a page would automatically download a file, you wernt expecting to download...., then once in your downloads folder, depending on the name, your memory of downloading it, you might be tempted to click it..., thinking it was something you previously downloaded, for install. I personally leave .exes in my downloads folder for long periods of time, before finally deciding to install them...
I dont really think chrome is trying to market to "advanced" users, i think its goal is to get the general population offa IE
