Google Chrome has a security feature that does not allow you to run any outdated plugins inside it. Usually this feature enhances your browser’s security and keeps you safer on the internet. But sometimes when you really have to use a plugin that has not been updated for a while, it can be a nuisance. Luckily, you can give a special command to run Chrome in order to deactivate this feature temporarily. Here is how:
Here is how you can use outdated plugins in Google Chrome browser:
- Right-click on Chrome shortcut on your desktop and select Properties from the right-click menu.
- In the Properties window, switch to the Shortcut tab. In the Target textbox, you would see the chrome.exe path. Append –allow-outdated-plug-ins to chrome.exe after a space.
- Click on the OK button to save the setting.
- Now you can run Chrome from this shortcut and use outdated plugins as you want.
Please note that using outdated plugins exposes you to security vulnerabilities of those plugins and decreases overall security level of your system. So use the outdated plugins only if you really have to and remove the appended string from command line as soon as you are done using those plugins.
