Hide/Unhide Extension Icons From Chrome Toolbar.
When you install a new Chrome extension, its icon automatically appears in the toolbar. This feature is useful if you want to quickly access an extension with one click. But there are many extensions (like Adblock, LastPass, etc.) where you don’t need to use them. They just run in the background.
So it makes sense to remove the icons for these extensions from the toolbar. Right?
Hiding a Chrome extension from the toolbar not only doesn’t clutter up your omnibox, it also prevents other people from seeing which Chrome extension you are using. And guess what, it’s pretty darn easy to do. All it takes is two simple clicks.

I discovered this feature by accident when one day all my extensions disappeared from the toolbar. But when I clicked on the three vertical lines to open Chrome’s preferences, I was able to see them all. So, if the same thing happened to you, here’s how to fix it.

I highly recommend that you use keyboard shortcuts for quick access to some Chrome extensions. For example, to save an article with a pocket, I press ALT + P, and to cut an article in Evernote, I press ALT + e. No need to click on the extension icon. Saves time.
Just go to chrome: // extensions Scroll down Keyboard shortcut.
