How to configure IDM extension for Chrome?
Please note that all IDM extensions that can be found in Google Store are fake and should not be used. You need to install IDM extension manually from IDM installation folder. Read in step 2 how to do it.
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?
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, then in order to install it manually you need to press on Chrome menu (arrow 1 on the image below), select "More tools" menu item (arrow 2) and then select "Extensions" tab (arrow 3).
After this open IDM installation folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Download Manager" by default, arrow 4 on the second image) and drag and drop "IDMGCExt.crx" (arrow 5 on the image) file into "Extensions" page opened in your Chrome
("Drop to install" popup will appear while dragging over the "Extensions" page).
Please note that file may be named simply IDMGCExt if your Windows Explorer does not show file extensions.
If Chrome shows warning that you "attempted to downgrade extension", please check again that you updated IDM to the latest version.
If Chrome shows above warning message near its menu bar, you need to install install IDM Integration Module extension from
Chrome Web Store
3. How to configure IDM extension for Chrome?
If you already added IDM extension into Chrome you need to configure it correctly. First press "Details" option for IDM extension.
Then check that "IDM Integration Module" extension is enabled (arrow 1 on the image).
If you use incognito mode in Chrome, you need to enable "Allow in incognito" checkbox (arrow 2 on the image).
