Are too many Chrome extensions in the toolbar and in the menu cluttered? Google is working on a solution for this. The new extension menu accommodates all your extensions in a combined toolbar icon. It is available today behind a marker.
Enabling the New Chrome Extension Menu
This extension menu will probably be enabled by default and will move all extensions out of the Chrome standard. "3-point menu" to this new menu. But you do not have to wait ̵
Enter "chrome: // flags" into Chrome's omnibox, also known as the address bar, and press Enter. Use the search box to search for "Extension Toolbar". You can also copy this text into Chrome's omnibox and press Enter:

Click the box to the right of the Extensions Toolbar Menu option "and select" Enabled ".
You must restart Chrome before your settings take effect. Click the "Restart Now" button to restart your web browser. Chrome reopens all open tabs, but first save your work.
Use Chrome menu for new extensions
Once Chrome restarts, you can "Right next to the Omnibox of Chrome will be a new icon for extensions in Display the shape of puzzle pieces, hide your browser's toolbar and menu, find all installed extensions, click the icon to display it.

If you right-click an extension, you can select "Pin". This option seems to attach the extension icon to simplify toolbar access, but the option did nothing when we tested it. This feature is under development.
Warning: flags are experimental
This option is behind an experimental marker. This means Google developers are still working on it. Like Chrome's Send Tab to itself feature, it may be flawed or dramatically changed in the future.
Google may decide to stop implementing the Extensions menu, and it may disappear. Do not rely on it to stay that way! Even if Google introduces the Extensions menu as planned, it will probably get an extra refresher first.
