If you’re having trouble with extensions in Google Chrome for Windows, Mac, or Linux, you can easily restart the extensions independently without restarting Chrome itself. You keep all your open tabs. Here’s how to do it.
Sometimes extensions come into play. They could slow down the browser with a memory leak or crash and stop working. In this case, restarting the extension can temporarily eliminate certain errors. Luckily, there’s a way in Chrome to do this without having to lose all your open windows and tabs.

First, open Google Chrome. In any window, click the Extensions puzzle piece icon in the toolbar. (You can also open Chrome’s menu by clicking the three dots button and selecting More tools > Extensions.)
When the Extensions menu appears, click Manage Extensions.
In the Extensions tab that opens, each installed extension has its own box. Find the name of the extension you want to restart and click the switch next to it to disable it.
After that, click the same switch next to the extension you just disabled to enable it again.
The extension has been reloaded and is now active again. You can repeat this process with any other extensions installed. Have fun browsing!
