Q: After restarting my Chrome book for an update, I could not access some of my extensions for about 5-10 min. Gmail and some apps were running normally. I suspect the update was ongoing and just taking longer than usual. Any thoughts? Phil
A: Not sure what might have caused the delay in starting extensions. Here are a few things to try.

  • Of course, first try restarting Chromebook
  • Check the extensions installed to be sure you know what each one is for.
  • Force update of Chrome extensions
    1. Start Google Chrome.
    2. Click the vertical ellipsis icon on the browser toolbar.
    3. Select More Tools -> Extensions.
    4. Click the Developer Mode button on the right side of the header.
    5. You should see the “Update” button on the left side of the header press it.
    6. Click the Developer Mode button again to turn off Developer mode.
