    How to disable all extensions temporarily on the Google chrome browser?


    Browser extensions can consume a lot of memory and slow down your browsing experience. Learn how to temporarily disable the extensions on the Google Chrome browsers.

    I use Google chrome as my default browser and have many plug-ins or extensions installed within the browser. Every time I open chrome, all the extensions start along with that. Sometimes, I dont require any of the extensions to be running. It makes use of a lot of memory and hence cause it to slow down after a period of browsing. I tried to disable all extensions, but I got to do that by clicking manually on each extension. Is their anyway where I can disable all the extensions (temporarily) with a single click? There must be some plugin to disable all extensions, I guess! Please share your experiences.

    1) Download the free software Ccleaner.
    2) Run Ccleaner and select Tools
