You canÂ add extensionsÂ to Microsoft Edge from theÂ Microsoft Edge Add-ons StoreÂ by default whenever you want. If you like, you can alsoÂ allow to add extensions to Microsoft Edge from other sourcesÂ like theÂ Chrome Web Store.
If needed, you canÂ turn on or offÂ added extensions as needed in Microsoft Edge without needing to remove (uninstall) the extension. For example, when an extension is causing an issue for a site, and needs to be temporarily turned off until finished with the site. When youÂ turn onÂ anÂ installed extension, the extension’s icon will be added to the toolbar next to the address bar. When youÂ turn offÂ anÂ installed extension, the extension’s icon will be removed from the toolbar next to the address bar.
If you like, you can also hide extension icons on the Microsoft Edge toolbar without needing toÂ turn offÂ orÂ uninstallÂ the extension. When you hide an extension’s icon from the toolbar, the icon is moved to the top of theÂ Settings and moreÂ (Alt+F) (3 dots) menu to access instead.
This tutorial will show you how to hide and show extension icons on the toolbar of the Chromium basedÂ Microsoft EdgeÂ inÂ Windows 7,Â Windows 8, orÂ Windows 10.
