Description

ImageCacheViewer is a simple tool that scans the cache of your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome), and lists the images displayed in the Web sites that you recently visited.
For every cached image file, the following information is displayed: URL of the image, Web browser that was used to visit the page, image type, date/time of the image, browsing time, and file size.
When selecting a cache item in the upper pane of ImageCacheViewer, the image is displayed in the lower pane, and you can copy the image to the clipboard by pressing Ctrl+M.

  • This utility works in any version of Windows, starting from Windows XP and up to Windows 8. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
  • The following Web browsers are supported: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Google Chrome.

  • It's recommended to close all windows of your Web browser before using ImageCacheViewer, to ensure that all cache files are saved to the disk.

Start Using ImageCacheViewer

ImageCacheViewer doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - ImageCacheViewer.exe

After running ImageCacheViewer, it begins to scan the cache of your Web browser, and displays all cached images from Web sites you visited in the last day. If you want to get images from other days, you can remove or change the last 1-day filter from the 'Advanced Options' window (F9).

After the scanning process is finished, you can also watch the image in the lower pane of ImageCacheViewer, by selecting the desired item in the upper pane.

If from some reason ImageCacheViewer fails to detect the cache of your Web browser properly, you can go to 'Advanced Options' window (F9), and choose the desired cache folders to scan for each Web browser.
