After upgrading my desktop Chrome to the latest version (Version 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit)). There is a jigsaw icon on the toolbar.

It's very annoying to have such an icon in this crowded space. Is this a new feature of Chrome? Am I the only one who saw this?

  • Looks like a new feature, not much you can do about it.

Is this a new feature of Chrome?

It is indeed a new feature. Of course, the feature was added with the release of Chrome 76, so I suppose it depends on your definition of a "new feature" is exactly. I suspect Google, with the release of Chrome 83, has simply changed what the default value is for Extensions Toolbar Menu

It's very annoying to have such an icon in this crowded space.

You can disable it by navigating to chrome://flags/ and disabling Extensions Toolbar Menu afterwords you must relaunch Chrome.

  • I only have 4 extensions, I wonder if it is an overflow icon displayed only if you have lots installed

  • @DavidPostill I just checked another google account, it has only 3 extensions but still shows this up. Jun 26 '20 at 9:25
  • I guess I must have removed it myself, I don't remember ...
