How to install Google Chrome extensions on Microsoft Edge

enero 23, 2020

The new version of Microsoft Edge, based on Chromium, has been officially available to everyone for a few days. The new architecture of Microsoft's web browser therefore borrows many Google Chrome elements.

Although it has its own catalog of extensions, the new Edge is also capable of running all of Google's browser extensions. The feature, which is not enabled by default, allows you to download and install any extension directly from the Chrome Web Store. Here's how to turn it on.

1. Access the extensions menu

Launch Edge on your machine, click on the main menu figured by three small dots, and go to the menu dedicated to extensions.

2. Allow extensions from other stores

In the window that displays, deploy the menu extensions top left, and activate the option Allow extensions from other stores.

Confirm your choice by clicking on To allow.

3. Install the Chrome extensions

Then go directly to the Chrome Web Store to download extensions from Google Chrome.

A blue banner indicating that you can now install extensions should be displayed at the top of the window.

Find the extension you want to install on Microsoft Edge and click the button Add Chrome.

The extension, in principle designed to work on Google Chrome, should be installed without problems on the new version of Microsoft's web browser.
