I have just downloaded the newest version of QGIS (3.2) and the processing toolbox is nowhere to be found. It says that it is now apart of the core package, but i cannot find it on anywhere on the program.


You can open it up with Ctrl + Alt + T.

Or you can click on the Processing Toolbox Icon:

You have to activate the plugin "Processing" in the Plugin-Manager.

Click on Processing > Toolbox on the Menu Toolbar. Then you can bring it back with Ctl+Alt+T.


Try disabling 'Processing' in plugins by unchecking it. Close the plugins pop-up.

Re-open plugins and re-enable 'Processing'. Close the plugins pop-up again.

Look for the icon in the toolbar or press CTRL+ALT+T
