Images not showing up in Chrome? Here is how to solve this problem

Last updated: January 2, 2023

Today, Google Chrome has managed to establish itself as the favorite browser of a lot of people. Indeed, the time is long gone when everyone still used Internet Explorer and the proof is that recently, the latter had to close its doors.

So today, Google Chrome has a leading position on the market, but that does not mean that this browser works without any bugs, quite the contrary. Besides, if you are here, it is for one of these bugs.

Indeed, when you browse the net, images simply no longer display on web pages. We will see in this article how to solve the problem in just a few minutes.

Check that you have a sufficient internet connection

The first thing to check if you ever have problems with images not displaying is simply to check if you ever have an internet connection that is sufficient at the moment.

Indeed, depending on the websites you are going to visit, the images can sometimes take up a lot of weight on the page and inevitably, if you have a struggling internet connection, it will take a while before displaying them.

What we therefore advise you to do is to carry out two checks. The first is to go to another site to check if the images display correctly on this one. Because yes, in addition to your connection, it could be the site you are visiting that is having problems.

If the images still do not appear, go to on the Netflix Fast site to test the quality of your connection.

From then on, you will see if it is in the red and if so, that is surely where your problem comes from.

Attempt to relaunch Google Chrome

If after doing the test you find that your internet connection is sufficient, then the problem could come directly from Google Chrome. Indeed, it is possible that you are dealing with a bug.

The easiest way is to open the task manager by right-clicking on the taskbar at the bottom and selecting it. Then choose to completely close Google Chrome. Then simply click on the icon to launch it again.

By forcing the closing the process and by running it again you should have fixed this bug if it was minimal. If it is still present, you will have to carry out operations that are a little more complicated than those up to now to resolve the problem.

Allow image display on Google Chrome

One of the explanations for the fact that Google Chrome no longer displays images, it may simply be that in the settings of the latter, it is no longer authorized for reasons which may be diverse and varied.

Indeed, you may have made a false manipulation without knowing it. It could also be a bug.

Yes, we cannot rule out the hypothesis of piratage and we therefore advise you to make a scan antivirus.

If it is simply permission todisplay chrome images which is unchecked, it is not too serious.

We advise you to follow the following procedure to quickly and easily solve the problem:

  • First, click on the three dots at the top of the screen.
  • Then select Settings.

    chrome settings
    Chrome Settings
  • Then click Privacy and Security.
  • Go to Site Settings.

  • Click on Pictures.
  • Activate " Sites may display images " if it is not done yet.

If this option was disabled, then you have surely found the solution to your problem of images not displaying on Chrome. However, if it was already activated, the problem surely comes from another level.

Enable JavaScript

If it is not Google Chrome directly which is responsible for the poor display of images, it is perhaps one of the components that it uses to function which is therefore at fault.

The component responsible for displaying these images is javascript and so in this part, we will focus on the latter and how to intervene to activate it if it has ever been deactivated, whether by mistake or following a bug. To do this, we advise you to follow the following steps:

  • Click on the three dots at the top of the screen.
  • Go to Settingsthen Confidentialité et sécurité
  • Go to Site Settings.
  • Click on Javascript.
  • Authorize its use if you have not already done so.

Here again, same observation as in the previous solution. If the button was ever disabled, you have surely solved the problem. However, if it was not disabled, then the problem most likely comes from elsewhere.

Clear Cache

If despite all your efforts, the images are still not displayed on Google Chrome, what we will advise you is to simply clear your browser cache, i.e. delete all cookies.

These cookies, they allow you to remember passwords or preferences on websites, but they can sometimes mess up and you must therefore clear the cache to resolve them.

This therefore means that you will, for example, have to reconnect to the sites where you used to stay connected, but if this solves your problems, it is not a disaster for you either.

To clear this cache, there is nothing very complicated to do.

  • Go back to the Settings.
  • And again in Confidentialité et sécurité.
  • Choose this time toclear browsing data and the problem should be solved.

Switch to another browser

If, despite everything we have suggested to you from the beginning, you still have this image display problem on Google Chrome, what we advise you to do is to uninstall then reinstall Chrome. Or temporarily use another browser.

Wait for the next Chrome update that might fix this bug.


There you go, now you know everything there is to know if you ever have a problem with image not showing on Google Chrome. The procedures to follow are quite simple and most of the time the problem is solved.
