Enable Chrome’s New Extensions Menu

This Extensions menu will likely be enabled by default in the future, moving all extensions from Chrome’s standard “3-dot menu” to this new menu. But you don’t have to wait—you can enable it today in the current stable version of the browser, Chrome 76.

To do so, type “chrome://flags” into Chrome’s Omnibox, also known as the address bar, and press Enter. Search for “Extensions toolbar” using the search box here. You can also copy-paste this text into Chrome’s Omnibox and press Enter: chrome://flags/#extensions-toolbar-menu

Click the box to the right of the “Extensions Toolbar Menu” option and select “Enabled.”

You’ll have to relaunch Chrome before your settings take effect. Click the “Relaunch Now” button to restart your web browser. Chrome will reopen all your open tabs, but be sure to save your work first.

How to Use Chrome’s New Extensions Menu

As soon as Chrome restarts, you’ll see a new puzzle piece-shaped Extensions icon to the right of Chrome’s Omnibox. Your browser’s toolbar and menu will be decluttered, and you’ll find all your installed extensions here. Click the icon to see them.

Chrome’s new Extensions menu provides more information about exactly which extensions can access data on the current website. There are two lists: Accessing this site’s data, and Can’t access this site’s data.

You can control whether an extension can access your data by clicking the menu button (the three dots) to the right of it and using the “This can read and change site data” option. This provides easier access to controlling a Chrome extension’s permissions. You can restrict a Chrome extension to only specific websites or only let it run when you click the icon in the menu.
