Once there, click on the Security & Privacy icon to go to that preference pane. Now, click on the Privacy button to the far right. Next, click on the Location Services section in the list down the left-hand column, and you’ll see all the apps that have requested your location data. If the little lock is closed in the lower left hand corner of the window, click it and enter in your administrator name and password.
Then, click the checkbox next to the apps you want to allow to see your location data, and uncheck the apps you don’t. A little compass icon to the right of any of your apps shows you the specific apps that have requested your location data within the last 24 hours.
Control Panel If the extension’s developer is behaving properly, you will be able to uninstall a globally installed extension from the Windows Control Panel. They will be shown alongside the other applications you have installed on your system in the Programs and Features section.
Uninstall them from the Control Panel, if you can. In the case of the Ask Toolbar, Ask.com graciously allows us to remove it from our system via the Control Panel, although they don’t even allow us to disable it from within Chrome. However, a developer could just as easily create a malicious extension and prevent you from uninstalling it via the Programs and Features window, so we’ll cover how you could get rid of this extension manually.
Windows Registry Chrome allows other programs to associate extensions with Chrome via the Windows Registry. We’ll need to use the registry editor to deal with such extensions. To open it, press the Windows key to open the Start menu (or Start screen, on Windows 8), type regedit into the Start menu (or at the Start screen), and press Enter. Locate the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Software Google Chrome Extensions (On 32-bit versions of Windows) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Software Wow6432Node Google Chrome Extensions (On 64-bit versions of Windows) Each key (folder) under the Extensions key represents a globally installed Chrome extension. Is there a microsoft publisher and microsoft access for the mac. You can check which extension a key contains by opening the key and examining the Path value. In our example here, we haven’t yet found the terrible Ask Toolbar, but we have located an obnoxious “SweetIM” toolbar that hitched a ride on some unscrupulous software.
To get rid of this extension, we’ll need to delete its key by right-clicking it and selecting delete. To delete the extension’s files as well, we could note the location displayed in the Path box, navigate to that folder on our computer, and delete the extension’s.crx file (or the entire folder containing it).
Remove a Managed Extension We haven’t yet found the Ask toolbar, so we know it’s not attached to Chrome through the registry. It must be located in one of Chrome’s extension folders.
To open your Chrome user data folder, enter the following into Windows Explorer’s address bar:%LOCALAPPDATA% Google Chrome User Data Open your profile folder – generally named Default, unless you have created a new profile – and open the Extensions folder inside it. You should be in a folder like the following: C: Users NAME AppData Local Google Chrome User Data Default Extensions If you have a variety of extensions and apps installed, you’ll see quite a few subfolders.
To determine which one is associated with the Ask Toolbar (or whatever globally installed extension you want to remove), we can open Chrome’s Extensions page, enable the Developer mode check box, and view the Ask Toolbar’s extension ID. Locate the folder with the same name as the extension ID, delete it, and restart Chrome.
