How to Manually Update Google Chrome Extensions

Chrome is my browser of choice primarily because of the speed and extensions. Extensions allow you to extend the functionality of your browser. One of my favorites is Weather Extension.

I often have users asking how to get updates immediately. For the most part, extensions should auto-update pretty regularly but in some cases, you may want to manually choose when you update an extension. Luckily chrome makes this easy. 

Here’s how you can manually update your Google Chrome extensions:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. In the address bar, browse to chrome://extensions. You may also go to the menu in the top right corner and choose More Tools->Extensions
  3. In the top right corner of the extensions page, check Developer mode.
  4. Click Update extensions now under Developer mode.

This will manually update all of your extensions to the latest version available using Chrome’s extension updater process. Unfortunately, I am not aware of a way to update individual extensions.
