Why does this not work?

Please could Chess.com give us a little message to tell us why this button is greyed out? It obviously LOOKS like the functionality is there and I would like to run some analysis over my games to find patterns where I repeat errors. Bit I can't sad.png Better help please! We are not all script kiddies... some of us were born before the interwebby and we are just trying to keep up!

It does work, you just have to select which games on that page you want to download first. You can check the box on the header to automatically check all games on that page or you can select the ones you  want.

No.

This is what I was saying. there is no reason for it to be other than chess.co not wanting you to do it.

Looks like this might be something the Chess.com developers might want to implement. There seems to be some demand for it.

We can't 1-click download all our games? Unbelievable.

I was trying to do the same thing but wasn't able to. So I wrote a script that does just that for me (us):

Enjoy!

Thanks for the script, hugely helpful! I'm so lazy I prefer spending the time to install selenium and set everything up than doing it manually (which would have taken less time XD)

Probably it's too late to join the party.

I have created a program to download all games at once from chess.com and lichess.com

Instead of waiting for e-mail from chess.com 

a lot easier way do exists 

https://www.openingtree.com/

This website provides you the feature to download all games in PGN format of any player of any know chess website

Just select chess.com and simply type your username, pick white or black (you can download your games with both colors but one at a time, by alternatively downloading you will get two PGN file for your game , one for black and other for white) 

Then click "EXPORT AS PGN" 

PGN file would start downloading 

you made it!
