Installing the Chrome Extension

Important:

Updating Google Chrome from version 72 to version 73 causes the Chrome extension installation to fail! Find out more in the troubleshooting guide for Studio.

The Chrome extension is bundled in the Studio setup. It is possible to install it even with no Internet access. The extension is installed globally if Google Chrome is installed system-wide, and per user if the browser is also installed this way. Please note that you may be asked to close Google Chrome while installing the extension, so be sure to save any pending work.

Note:

It is recommended to close all Chrome instances before installing the extension.
