Windows 10: I'm trying to locate a image that I viewed on chrome

    I'm trying to locate a image that I viewed on chrome


    I was searching on Craigslist for some items and I know I viewed one item several times but now the seller has deleted his ad. I was wondering if there's any way possible I can access Google Chrome cache to possibly fine the image I'm looking for.I located the cache folder but there is no file types that all the just numbers. I would appreciate if anyone knows a way how to go about finding images in the cache in Google Chrome.Also when you surf using one browser can an image be found in another browser cache? For example I use Google Chrome and I have Firefox but I don't use it often. I was wondering if the cash goes to the same place or if images viewed on each browser are separate.My most important question is a very first one and that is how can I access Google Chrome cache and try to recover an image that I viewed several times but is no longer available on Craigslist

    Each browser has it's own independent cache, even Edge and IE use separate caches. This thread has some ideas to help explore Chrome's cache....

    I've tried the utility and I can't seem to get it to work, in Google Chrome, then access about:cache and I get all the hex numbers, I tried copying them and then posting them in the website that you suggested, I don't get anything. Sometimes it opens and just says searching and it stays that way for what seems like 30 minutes to an hour and then I just cut it off.If anyone uses this program and is willing to give me a six step by step I'd be more than happy to try to get it to work. I've also tried another chrome cache viewer called imagechacheviewer and that was also unable to work. The example it shows on one of the pages for one of these utilities was thec cache are listed above and as you click on them if there is an image it shows up on the bottom I couldn't get that to work either at the moment I don't have that page open so I don't know exactly which one of those two utilities it is but both of them having problems with anyone could help I'd appreciate it
