Where Are Google Chrome Extensions Stored

where are google chrome extensions stored, normally here are the places in windows, linux, mac and some other OS, but in case of already unpacked extensions there is a different scenario. Extension engine does not explicitly change their location or add a reference to its local paths, they are left in the place where there are selected from in all Operating Systems.

Storage Location for Unpacked Extensions

Ex: If i load a unpacked Extension from E:\Chrome Extension the unpacked Extension is still in the same location

Storage Location for Packed Extensions

Navigate to chrome://version/ and look for Profile Path, it is your default directory and Extensions Folder is where all the extensions, apps, themes are stored


If my Profile Path is C:\Users\<Your_User_Name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default then my storage directory is

C:\Users\<Your_User_Name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions


Chrome extensions are stored in:  ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extensions/


Chrome extensions are stored in ~/.config/chromium/Default/Extensions

For older versions of windows (2k, 2k3, xp)

"%Userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions"
