Plugins Button

This is just a shortcut to Chrome Plugins page.


It's just a quick way to access the "Plugins" page from the Chrome toolbar. Click on the "Plugins" icon and you'll open the plugins list. It does just that and nothing more...

Before version 57 of the Chrome™ browser the plugins page was called ... Hmm... "Plugins".

In the newer versions of the browser (57 and up) the "Plugins" page is replaced by "Components" page.

In older versions of the browser (Chrome 56 and older) the Plugins Button opens the chrome://plugins page. Starting with version 57 it opens the new "Components" page (chrome://components). Unfortunately, this is not the only change introduced with Chrome 57. Before that version we could disable/enable plugins on the plugins page. In the newer versions this feature is gone. To disable plugins (most noticeably -- the Flash plugin) you now need to go to the Settings menu. Check this link if you need help on Flash or PDF settings:

This extension is quite simple -- it just adds a shortcut to the browser's toolbar. But there are 2 options available, in case you want to change it's behavior:

  • You can set the button to open the target page in new tab or in the current tab and,
  • Add the button to the context menu.
  • Select between 5 different icons to best fit your browser theme
