Is adding apps and extensions screwing up the functionality of my computer?


Ever since I started adding apps (see screenhot for what I've got) it seems my computers have gotten kind of snarky. Not anything major but little stuff that normally works suddenly doesn't. Do the apps complicate the functionality in other areas? Thanks.

More detail would help.

Are you referring to your computer in general or to your browser specifically? If the browser, which browser? What, particularly, are the symptoms of the problem?

I would suggest disabling the apps one at a time, then testing, to see whether you can identify a culprit.

Process of elimination.

Thanks Frank. I did that.

Two issues come to mind. (And I have posts on them already, so I don't want to be doubling everything unfairly.) But briefly.
#1)I lost my Dropbox icon in the toolbar. (I still have the functionality and syncing but the icon is really convenient.) So yeah, I removed each app one by one. Even re-started the computer each time. It did not bring back the icon.

#2) I can't get multiple workstations. (I did not do the app removal with this.)
