I understand that Chrome extensions can be launched by clicking their icons located across the address bar, or from a drop-down menu below a chevron to the immediate left of the Chrome control icon (3 horizontal lines).
I have an extension "Extension Manager (aka Switcher)" that shows the extensions I have enabled, but it does not provide a way to launch them. The icons on the address bar do launch their respective extensions, but several of the enabled extensions do not have icons there. I have no chevron to the immediate left of the Chrome control icon.
I am not using any "hide button" options.
I have tried disabling and then re-enabling the extensions.
My computer has been rebooted multiple times.
I have been struggling with this for several days and I'm getting desperate because I really need to have access to some of the extensions, such as my to-do lists. I'm afraid to uninstall and reinstall any extensions for fear I will lose what I have already put into them (ex: to-do lists).
Did I inadvertently do something to cause this, or is it a bug or a fluke?
I have Googled everything I can think of with almost no hits so it doesn't seem to be a common problem.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
