Remove Google Chrome extensions? This is how!

How to remove an extension from Google Chrome, this question I have often had with customers. Removing an extension from Google Chrome is easy. No technical knowledge is required.

In the Google Chrome store, you can choose from many extensions that can make using the web a lot more fun and easier. The issue with extensions may be that they cause a lot of ads in the Google Chrome browser, or the extension (s) slow down Chrome at startup.

This can significantly enhance the online experience with the Google Chrome browser. The fewer extensions available in Chrome, the better and faster Chrome will work.
