Is it possible to enable and possibly even configure a Chrome extension on startup of Chrome or by terminal?

Every now and then I need to temporarily disable an extension. I often then forget to re-enable it but it is really important I keep it running as often as possible. I thought that if I can enable the addon through a terminal command then I can run that command on a timer somehow.

  • it is not easy to use because one must specify the exact version number. Also, I tried it and couldn't get it to work! I have a further complication in that I do in fact need to specify a setting inside the addon on every restart. (but thank you)

  • For that complexity I'd suggest writing AutoHotKey script to automate your flow Aug 27 '20 at 11:44
  • thanks @MartheenCahyaPaulo would you know the command to actually change the option of an addon?

  • AutoHotKey is meant to replace mouse clicks and keypress, look it up Aug 27 '20 at 12:16
