Settings button is a simple but time- saving extension which adds a shortcut to Chrome settings to your toolbar.
Add Settings Button to your browser and open the settings panel with just one click.
It's just a shortcut but still -- there are some options available: you can set the button to open the settings page in new tab or in the current tab and, if you want, you can add it to the context menu.
Get it from Chrome Web Store » Options: How To »
-- Because with the settings button in the toolbar you’ll do it in one click, which is 50% faster :)
-- This extension doesn’t “eat” memory. In technical words, it uses non-persistent background page, which means chrome doesn’t need to reserve memory for the settings button (check the Chrome Task Manager if you don’t trust us: when you click on the settings icon it will start the extension, open the settings page and remove it quickly after that)
-- You could, but you’ll need more clicks to access the bookmark from the menu or you’ll need to have the bookmarks bar open. For people like me the bookmarks bar is not a good choice (it takes from the vertical space of the browser) and the toolbar icon is more convinient.
-- Yes, you can remove it with literally two clicks (just right-click on the settings button and select “Remove from Chrome”)
-- Right-click on the settings icon and select “Options”.
-- Right-click on the extension’s icon and select “Options”, then uncheck the first checkbox
-- Go to the options page (see above) and check the respective checkbox (“Add settings button to context menu”)
-- Currently you can’t, but in the next version (coming soon) we’ll add this functionality
-- You can, but in future it will be possible only on Chrome OS devices. To do that just install our Settings Button app
