Google Chrome cache file recovery overview 

Like the above case, sometimes, you might want to view or recover a business logo, an image, an online video or some other web content that you viewed previously on a web page in Google Chrome. Fortunately, cache files make data recovery from Google Chrome possible and easy. In order to speed up access to websites, Google Chrome creates a cache on your computer which downloads and stores certain parts, such as images, videos, scripts, and other parts the first time you visit a site. So, if you don't clear it, you can view or recover those temporary Internet files easily from the cache file.

To make the job even easier, here, we will show you on how to view and recover Google Chrome cache files step by step with or without Chrome cache viewer. You can try these tutorials to fully retrieve or extract your data from Google Chrome cache files.

Step 2. Press the "Ctrl" and "F" keys on your keyboard at the same time to open the find bar.

Step 3. Type part of the name or address of a cached file into the find box and press "Enter" to find it. Continue pressing "Enter" to page through any matching results.
