How to Turn On or Off Extensions in Microsoft Edge Chromium

Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

You can boost your productivity, have more fun, and customize your browsing experience with add-ons (extensions) for Microsoft Edge. Extensions, or add-ons, are simple tools that customize your browser experience and offer you more control.

If needed, you can turn on or off added extensions as needed in Microsoft Edge without needing to remove the extension. For example, when an extension is causing an issue for a site, and needs to be temporarily turned off until finished with the site.

When you turn on an installed extension, the extension's icon will be added to the toolbar next to the address bar.

When you turn off an installed extension, the extension's icon will be removed from the toolbar next to the address bar.
