In Google Chrome; how to select more than one

  • extensions and
  • search engines

at the same time so that I can delete all at the same time?

Regards John

I believe that deleting all themes and extensions is not a simple process.

Themes can be deleted by entering chrome://settings/, and under Appearance clicking "RESET TO DEFAULT".

Extensions can only be deleted in chrome://extensions/ one at a time. To delete all the extensions in one go, you need to position to the folder
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions
and delete all its sub-folders. This should be done when Chrome is not running. The first time you try it, I suggest, rather than deleting, to move them away, just in case, until you verify that there are no ill-effects.

  • Resetting a browser affects all settings of a browser. Mostly I observed that unwanted extensions and search engines added automatically in Chrome. While deleting unwanted extensions and search engines, I have to delete one by one. That’s why I want to select all unwanted extensions and delete them by a single click. Same way, I want to select all unwanted search engines and delete them by a single click. – user886982 Dec 6 at 22:19
  • For search engines see this post. – harrymc Dec 7 at 7:22
