How to uninstall extensions in Chrome

Before proceeding it is necessary to know that Google Chrome offers the possibility of having its own extensions on any PC in use. Once logged in with our Google account, all the extensions we have installed will sync to the device we are using at the time.

Once we’re going to remove or disable an extension, we’ll do it for all the devices on which we use Google Chrome.

There are two ways to remove an extension from Chrome and now we’ll show you.

First method

The first thing you see when you install an extension is the respective icon in the bar on the other side to the right. If you can’t see it, you need to resize the address bar. Once you have displayed the icon, right-click on its icon and complete the operation by removing it from Chrome.

Second method

If the icon does not appear, or you want to quickly delete multiple Chrome extensions, another method to remove extensions from Chrome is to go to the extensions menu.

To do this click on the “Customize and control Google Chrome” button  – ie the 3 dots in the upper right corner – and go to  Settings. Once in the Settings menu go to the Extensions section. Here it will be child’s play to remove an extension, just click on the trash icon for the extension we want to remove and you’re done.

Disable extensions

These were the 2 methods to remove extensions from Chrome. But what if our intent was simply to disable them, without removing them completely? The procedure is what we saw in the second method, that is, go to the Settings menu and choose the Extensions section.

Once there instead of clicking on the trash bin icon you will need to uncheck the “Enable” item.
