Google Chrome - How to install third-party extensions?




Issue

Upon trying to install extension for Google Chrome (out of the Chrome Web Store), the following error is displayed:
  • "Extensions, apps, and user scripts cannot be installed from this web site".

Solution

  • Download the extension to your PC (do not try to install it):
  • Right-click on the Install button and select "Save link as"
  • In the window that opens, choose the folder where the extension (.crx) will be saved and click on the "Save".
  • Under Google Chrome, click on "Customized and Control Google Chrome" > "Tools" > "Extensions".
  • Finally, drag the .crx file to the extensions page, to install it.
