Download panel for video is not shown or shown in some wrong place. Or When I open sites in Chrome IDM starts many unwanted downloads. What should I do?

Error icon  1. Please update IDM to the latest version by using "IDM Help→Check for updates..." menu item

2. I don't see "IDM Integration module" extension in the list of extensions in Chrome. How can I install it?

Maybe you or some program on your computer deleted IDM extension from Chrome or you have some old version of extension. You need to install the latest version of IDM extension.

Please note that all IDM extensions that can be found in Google Store are fake and should not be used. Our extension is hidden on Google Store, and it cannot be searched as well. This is made by design, because there is no sense to install extension without IDM, also the extension should be installed automatically during IDM installation.

If extension is not installed automatically, then install "IDM Integration Module" extension from Chrome Web Store using direct link below:
