    Oh god seriously? That works? I swear I tried that when making the addon manager, and here I made some annoying work-around of making a bat file the default browser to add the arguments! Uhg. I might have to fix that.
    Thanks for the info, though.

    Note:

    When Chrome updates these 2 registry keys are set back to their original values (ie No --enable-extensions)...

    Thanks for the insight. I forgot to add that to the original post (assumed it was understood :P). I've added your information to the OP.

    @ waha, do not assume everybody is "hacking" their registry to make this work.
    So just keep the workaround in your software as planned.
    Just my humble opinion...

    I was meaning to use this method instead of the way I had it, not removing it completely.
    People won't even have to open regedit if they use the extension manager, just push 7.

    Default StartMenuInternet Missing Chrome

    I tried the original fix but when I get to the registry entry the StartMenuInternet folder doesn't even have Chrome in it (it does have IEXPLORE.EXE, though).

    Chrome is set as my default browser and it shows as such in the Start menu.

    I'm running Vista 64-bit.

    Any help?

    Default Don't load extensions from non-Ascii paths.

    Note: loading an extension with a non-ascii path seems to fail (Chromium 3.0.198.0).

    I tried
    "C:\.....\chrome.exe" --enable-extensions --load-extension="C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\デスクトップ\myextension"
    on my Japanese Windows XP and this failed. Only after moving the extension to an all-ascii path (eg. C:\ myextension) did the extension load.

    Just to make this easier for people, I made a .reg file of all the tweaks. (this is for XP only, dont use on vista/7). Just download it and double-click it, it should work. It does for me anyway. Here's the link:

    BTW, it will enable extensions, user scripts, bookmark syncing and bookmark menu.

    EDIT: Any chance of this being added to first post, to help people enable this stuff easily?

    I did the whole search the registry for chrome.exe bit and added --enable-extensions to every entry I could find in the command folders and that didn't seem to fix everything, but . . . this morning, every avenue seems to be working. (Most importantly, my fn+F3 shortcut.)

    Go figure.

    As of the latest dev, there is no need to edit anything to enable extensions anymore.
