This is just an extension manager with some shortcuts to the browser plugins, components, extensions, apps and themes settings. When installed, it looks like this:

The integarted extensions manager gives you a quick way to manage your extensions, apps and themes.


The original “Plugins Button” was flash-related. With the time I added more functions but flash was still one of the important parts. At the end of 2020 Adobe killed flash, respectively all major browsers ended the flash plugin support. On all modern versions of Chrome, Edge and Opera, Flash is no more…

If you used the plugins button in the past and things are looking strange, or you just want to know what’s new:

Quick Overview (version 7.0)

1) Permission Scanner

We added “Permission Scanner” that will show you all permissions granted to all extensions in one easy to read table.
Also, the permission scanner will calculate your overal Risk Score (more or less arbitrary, but still useful simple numeric value)

2) Extensions Manager

Since version 6.0 the plugins menu includes quick and simple extensions manager where you can control your extensions, apps and themes with few clicks. It does the same as the internal chrome://extensions page, but in smaller and more organized interface.

From the new “Extensions” menu you can access all extensions currently installed, get the basic info about them, enable, disable and remove extensions, apps and themes with single click. 

On first start the extensions manager will ask for “management” permission: this is needed in order to load and manage extensions and apps. After that (if you grant it the permission to access the extensions) it will provide you with the list of all of them, organized in categories / types: apps, extensions, enabled, disabled etc.

In action, it looks like this:

It is self-evident — just click the small “check” icon in the right to enable/disable extension or the “trash” icon to remove it from Chrome. Sort extensions with the top-left buttons. Get more info about given app or extension by clicking on it. That’s it — no need to go and search for given extension in the long and boring “chrome://extensions” page (although it is also accessible from the top-right button, if you need it) — just open the “Plugins” menu and click “Extensions”…

3) Keyboard Shortcut 

Now you can invoke the plugins menu by pressing Ctrl+Shift+E for Windows and Linux or Command+Shift+E for Mac

4) Shortcuts to Chrome Plugins Pages

As before, the main focus remains: quick access to various pages related to browser add ons (extensions, apps, themes…) that we call “plugins”

Note that different versions are available on different stores. Usually the newest one is in the chrome store.
