How to manually update Chrome extensions

October 15, 2012 05:00 PDT

Google Chrome automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser or the extensions is available. The update process happens in the background and doesn't require any action on your part.

Google Chrome checks for updates on its own schedule. When you know that a new version of an extension is available, you want to manually force update it right now. Please follow the steps below:

  1. Launch Google Chrome, type chrome://extensions/ to open the Extensions page. You can also click on the wrench icon at the top right of the browser, then click Tools -> Extensions to open it.
  2. Check the option Developer Mode in the right-top session
  3. Click the button Update extensions now. The extensions will be force updated.
