How to sort extensions into groups in Chrome [Tip]

In Chrome, you can install browser extensions to help you do things that you can’t normally do with just its default options. The thing is when you have too many extensions installed, there would be little space left for your address bar. Therefore, you might want to consider sorting out your extensions into groups. This way, you can easily switch from one group of extensions to another. You can also hide the ones that you’re currently not using so there’s less clutter.

How to sort extensions into groups in Chrome

  • In Chrome, go to the Web Store then search for the “Context” extension. Download and install it on your browser.
  • Once installed, the extension will add its shortcut icon to your browser’s omnibar. It will also redirect you to its “Options” page so that you can start grouping all of your active extensions.
  • To create a new group of extensions, just click the “New Context” button.
