Change plugin settings

Chrome uses plugins by default on a webpage unless they are a security risk, automatically blocks plugins that are out of date or not used by a lot of programs. You can also block plugins yourself any time:

  1. On your computer, click the Chrome menu Chrome menu.
  2. Click Settings > Show advanced settings.
  3. In the “Privacy section,” click Content settings.
  4. In the “Plugins” section, choose one of these:
    • Run all plugin content: Chrome will run all up-to-date plugins.
    • Detect and run important plugin content (default): Chrome will run important plugins. Click to play non-essential content.
    • Let me choose when to run plugin content: Chrome will stop any plugins from running automatically. You can run specific plugins by right-clicking on them and choosing Run this plugin.

To allow plugins for specific websites only, click Manage exceptions.

Turn specific plugins on and off

You can turn certain plugins on and off at any time.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. In the address bar at the top, type chrome://plugins/ and press Enter.
  3. Next to the plugin you’d like to use or turn off, click Enable or Disable.

Note: When you visit a page with a plugin that’s turned off, you’ll see a message that says the plugin has been disabled instead of seeing the video or audio that’s on the page.
