How to Manage Extensions in Chrome

Web extensions allow you to customize and expand your Google Chrome browser with new features and functions. From password management to online security, all the way to web translation, extensions can make your Internet travels easier in a wide variety of ways. If you are looking for Chrome extensions to download, you can find them in the Chrome web store. If you want to know how to manage the extensions you have already downloaded, though, use the steps below to do so.

Step 1
If you get into the game of downloading extensions, there’s a chance you won’t want to have them all operating at the same time. To turn certain extensions on or off, open the Chrome menu and click “Tools,” then “Extensions.” You will be able to check or uncheck a box that says “Enabled” for each extension.

Step 2
Having lots of extensions can also begin to crowd your browser toolbar after awhile, making certain extensions difficult to find when you need them. Luckily, you can move your extensions around and organize them how you want. To do this, just click on the icon of the extension you want to move and drag it to the spot on the toolbar where you want it to be.

Step 3
Tired of going without your extensions on your work or home computer? Simply launch Google Chrome and login to your Google account. Google syncs your extensions to your account, so you can access them from any computer as long as it has Chrome and you can login.

Extensions can enhance your Google Chrome web browsing experience quite a bit. Use the tips above to keep them organized and accessible, so that you can get the most out of their added functions.
