I'm trying to figure out a way to create a shortcut or batch file, to launch Google Chrome with just the extension "Ad-block" enabled but all other extensions disabled.

I have a shortcut for Chrome with all extensions enabled (for regular use) and a shortcut with "chrome.exe --disable-extensions" when I need to run programs that need as much memory as I can give it.

Now I want a shortcut so I can run Chrome with just Ad-Block enabled, because browsing the clean Chrome was annoying with all the adds popping up.

Why not just remove all the other extensions but ad-block in chrome. –  EBGreen Oct 30 '12 at 18:22

While Eduard's new user solution is very easy and elegant, I hope it's not the only option to do this. I'm looking for a way to do this too, and I don't want to create two profiles for that. Anyway, I thought that maybe that way to do this is to disable all extensions but AdBlock by default, and then somehow enable all the extensions when launching the regular Chrome shortcut, therefore making the custom Chrome shortcut open with only AdBlock enabled. However, I can't find any way to do this. Maybe the way to do this is by using two Preferences files, where each defines enabled extensions. –  amiregelz Oct 30 '12 at 21:16

I use an extension manager called "Extensioner" to manage my extensions.

With it, I created 3 groups of extensions. I can now enable or disable each group at will, with one mouse click.

Is it possible to enable a specific group automatically through launch options somehow? –  amiregelz Oct 31 '12 at 20:01

You might as well create a create a new user (left upper corner avatar), install addblocker for that user.

Every-time you will change to the newer user (by clicking left upper corner avatar) a new chrome will open with only addblocker and all the settings made for that account, for me it works like that.
