Type the following text into Chrome's address bar (also known as the omnibox) and hit Enter: chrome://extensions. You should now see a list of all installed extensions, also known as add-ons. Each listing details the extensions's name, version number, description, and related links. Also included is an enable/disable check box along with a trash can button, which can be used to delete an individual extension.

To disable an extension, remove the check box next to its Enabled label by clicking on it with your mouse. In the example above, I have chosen to disable the Chrome Remote Desktop extension.
