    Exclamation Uninstalling Chrome Extensions

    Hey everyone !
    I'm new around here..

    I started working on some plugins for Chrome, mostly for fun.
    I've been following the How-To (http://dev.chromium.org/developers/d...tensions/howto).

    However, i can't seem to figure out how to disable or uninstall an extension. I made a bunch of HelloWorld stuff and now all my pages have a pink background and have a bunch of Cheezburger cats all over them .

    I thought that if i modified the manifest and the .js, while using the same "id" it would overwrite the older version of the plugin.. however it doesn't seem to work like that.

    If i go to chrome-ui://extensions/ , i can see all the extensions that were installed throughout my tests.

    Any help is appreciated !

    Try this:
    Go to Chrome's shortcut properties, delete the "--enable-extensions --load-extension=c:\path " line and restart Chrome. Go to "chrome-ui://extensions/" to make sure the extensions are disabled. Then, re-add the shortcut's line and restart Chrome.
    Lets hope it work

    I figured it out..

    Turns out i had another Chrome instance running while i was restarting my dev one.

    Shutting down all Chrome.exe will uninstall any plugin that are not in c:\path anymore.

    Thanks for the help Stamga!
