How To View Your Installed Plug-Ins in Safari


About.com on Safari browser
Apple Inc.

In the Safari web browser, plug-ins can be installed to add functionality and enhance the power of the application. Some, such as basic Java plug-ins, may come prepackaged with Safari while others are installed by you. A list of the plug-ins that have been installed, along with descriptions and MIME type information for each, is maintained locally on your computer in HTML format. This list can be viewed from within your browser in just a few short steps.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 1 Minute

Here's How:

  1. Open your Safari web browser by clicking on the Safari icon in the dock.
  2. Click on Help in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen.
  3. A drop-down menu will now appear. Choose the option labeled Installed Plug-Ins.
  4. A new browser window will now open containing detailed information on all of the plug-ins you currently have installed.
