Browser extensions are non-native plugins (not typically developed by Google), which provide additional functionality to Google Chrome. They’re actually one of the main reasons behind the popularity of the browser. With plugins, Chrome supports rich web content like Java and Flash. Although these extensions are extremely easy to install and free to download, you might still need to turn extensions off and on from time to time, particularly if you want to troubleshoot a problem with Google Chrome or increase security. Until recently, you could enable and disable Chrome plugins via the chrome://plugins page. But Google has changed how Chrome settings are organized, and the Chrome plugins page no longer exists. But don’t worry - they aren't lost!
There are two ways to see your Google Chrome plugins.
If you want to uninstall a Chrome plugin, click on Remove. Confirm you want to remove it and then Chrome will uninstall and remove the extension. If you’re deleting a Chrome plugin which you believe was installed by a virus or malicious program, click on the Report abuse box before confirming you want to remove it. This tell's the Chrome web store's moderators and Google that the extension may not be trustworthy. To re-enable a Chrome plugin, simply follow the steps 1 to get to the Extensions page, then, click on the toggle switch to Enable the extension.
